The National Wounded Warriors organization has recently faced heavy accusations for the improper use of donation funds given to its organization. Whether that is true or not is not for us to judge. In light of those recent reports we want to help our local community learn more about the Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors organization. Although both the national organization and state level organization share the same name, they are not affiliated in any way, shape or form.
Who is PAWW?
Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors, Inc. is an independent ALL VOLUNTEER Pennsylvania Non-Profit Corporation that has 501(c)(3) charitable status from the Internal Revenue Service. They offer Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors, their families, or Pennsylvania veterans with medical emergencies in their families financial assistance.
They do not pay credit card bills, personal service loans, or direct payments to wounded warriors except in the most unusual circumstances. They do help wounded warriors with home repairs, utility payments, short term rent or mortgage payments, medical bills and medical equipment not covered under current government programs and educational programs to prepare for college under the GI Bill.
When we began our American Heroes Campaign almost a year ago we looked into many organizations both nationally and regionally. After talking with the PAWW group we felt its organization was in special need, and ran its organization ethically and fairly all while keeping the donation within the state of PA. As we build towards the future of this veteran’s campaign we are always looking at various veterans organizations for ways that we may be able to help.
As featured in a December issue of LP Gas Magazine, we take great pride in employing veterans and active military members. Throughout the year we use our truck as a way to help raise awareness for all veterans regardless of organization affiliations or not.
How Can I Help PAWW?
As part of our American heroes campaign we are pledging $0.02 of every gallon delivered from our military truck to the PA Wounded Warriors organization. Your support can go a long way for them as well. To learn more about the PA Wounded Warriors visit their website at www.pawoundedwarriors.org.
