During HCIM’s July 2015 15th anniversary celebration, we asked our clients and colleagues to vote over the course of 15 days for which of the 15 featured charities they wanted HCIM to make a donation to, with the top three charities receiving a cash donation. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) received the most votes, so on August 24, 2015, Tom Streeter (HCIM co-founder and SVP, Product Solutions) visited WWP’s Jacksonville, Fla. headquarters and met with Courtney Davidson, their Community Events Coordinator. He presented them with a $4,000 donation on behalf of HCIM’s clients and colleagues.
“We’re extremely grateful for HCIM’s support of the Wounded Warrior Project mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors,” said Courtney Davidson, Community Events Coordinator at WWP. “Their generosity gives us the critical resources we need to provide the 20 life-saving programs and services, free of charge, to the injured veterans, caregivers and families we serve.”
Following the check presentation, Davidson offered Streeter a tour of the WWP headquarters. There was an entire floor dedicated to showcasing WWP’s countless accomplishments and programs. The hallways were adorned with the stories of their veterans, a chronological timeline of the history of WWP, and prominent displays of their vision and mission statement. WWP was founded to support the needs of veterans and service members that suffered a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound in the conduct of duty on or after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The organization initially set out to provide comfort items to the wounded service members, but their vision quickly grew to encompass a complete rehabilitative effort to help warriors transition back to civilian life.
“Wounded Warrior Project is a wonderful organization and is committed to caring for our remarkable service men and women, so it was an honor being able to contribute to their cause on behalf of my company and learn more about the important work they do,” said Streeter.
