COMFORT STARTS HERE
WWP backpacks are filled with essential care and comfort items such as clothing, toiletries, playing cards, and more - all designed to make a hospital stay more comfortable. Wounded service members receive backpacks as they arrive at military trauma units across the United States.
Injured warriors overseas who are evacuated from field hospitals to larger military treatment facilities stateside or abroad receive a smaller version of the WWP backpack, known as Transitional Care Packs (TCPs), for immediate comfort.
To the left is an example of the WWP backpacks warriors receive in the hospital. WWP packs can be purchased through Under Armour and will be presented to an injured service member recuperating in a military hospital. For more information, visit Under Armour.
"At that moment, there probably wasn't a more significant gift [WWP backpack] that I've ever received. And with the gift came a promise…that if there was anything I ever needed, they were there for me. It was just really nice to know there was somebody in your corner." ---Wounded Warrior
"We are forever grateful for all the WWP packs you've donated for our wounded warriors that come through here to recover! I wish I could capture the expressions on their faces when we give them a Wounded Warrior Project pack with the basic necessities inside…it truly is priceless! Some of them come with only the clothes on their back and may be here for weeks. So, to have some personal items to make them feel like a "normal" person, makes a world of difference.Again, a thousand thank yous could never cover the gratitude and appreciation from us and the wounded warriors." ---USAF Nurse
Family Support Tote (FST)The WWP Family Support Tote (FST) is the newest item to be added to our WWP pack program. The tote will be given to the spouse or family member of a warrior who is in the hospital.
The tote provides immediate comfort items to the family during a very difficult time. This program was conceived based on an unmet need observed by our Family Support Team and was developed through the most relevant input available – family members of Wounded Warriors in the hospitals. Each FST includes a planner with WWP collateral, a neck pillow, toiletry kit, and much more!
The family experiences challenges along with their warrior. WWP reaches out to family members who are suddenly serving as full-time supporters or caregivers.Learn more
