Wounded Warrior Project Commits $350,000 to Camp Corral's 2022 Summer Programs
Funding to help more children of post-9/11 wounded warriors attend resilience-based enrichment programs
RALEIGH, N.C., April 20, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Camp Corral, a leading provider of support and enrichment opportunities for the children of this nation's wounded, ill, and fallen military heroes, today announced that Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) has committed $350,000 to fund Camp Corral's upcoming 2022 summer camp programs.
WWP's funding will reduce waitlists for the families of post-9/11 wounded warriors seeking enrichment opportunities for their children. Additionally, this partnership will support Camp Corral's continuing expansion of its resilience-based resources that provide the children of wounded warriors with respite, coping skills, and opportunities to build friendships with fellow military children.
"Our research indicates that 70% of military children perform caregiving duties, making it critical to ensure these kids have access to respite and support programs tailored to the unique stress that comes with such responsibilities," said Lori Noonan, Chief Operating Officer at Camp Corral. "We're thankful for WWP's support in this important mission, and we're proud to work side by side in transforming the way America's injured veterans and their families are empowered in our communities."
WWP is committed to serving the post-9/11 generation and all future generations of injured service members, ensuring they get the care, attention, and support they deserve. WWP also serves the family members and caregivers who are an integral part of the warrior's recovery and transition back into civilian life.
Throughout the month of April, Camp Corral is celebrating Month of the Military Child by advocating for military-connected children within their communities.
