Auto Recyclers Donate $19,000 To Wounded Warrior Project
Fourteen auto recycling facilities gave back this past holiday season. Team Premium Recycled Parts North East (Team PRPNE) has donated $19,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project. This is the second year the group has donated. Joan Brown, co-owner of Brown’s Auto Salvage in Bomoseen, Vt., and member of Team PRPNE, said the group’s board decided the donation would be a way to pay it forward.
The Wounded Warrior Project is a national, nonprofit organization, that helps injured veterans and their families. More than 50,000 servicemen and women have been injured in the recent military conflicts. In addition to the physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the visible wounds of war, including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic brain injury while on deployment. To date, the Wound Warriors Project has served over 95,000 service persons and their families.
