Who We Benefit:


 

North West Harvet logoNorthwest Harvest: Washington's own statewide hunger relief agency, provides a proven, successful, and cost-effective model for getting nutritious food to those who need it.

We strive to be the most efficient hunger response program in the state of Washington, with more than 93% of our budget going directly to food distribution. Knowing that good nutrition is key to health, Northwest Harvest is committed to providing the freshest, most nutritious food possible to our clients. Fruits and vegetables account for 60% of the food we distribute.

We supply 18 million pounds of food each year to more than 300 food banks, hot meal programs and elementary schools across Washington. Our no-fee policy enables our partners to do more with their own limited resources, providing a combined half million food services in their communities each month. Our food provides a bridge from temporary crisis to stability, allowing those on limited incomes to use their cash for medical expenses, housing, transportation costs, utilities, and childcare.

Northwest Harvest receives no city, county, state, or federal funding for operating expenses and relies solely on contributions from individuals, businesses, foundations, and other organizations. Much of our work is made possible by volunteers of all ages, who give more than 46,000 hours of their time each year to feed the hungry.

Disabled American Veterans: Throughout the history of the United States, veterans are the ones who have fought for our freedoms.  Without their sacrifice, we would not be a free country.  The biggest mistake any of us could make is to pass a veteran and not say thank you for their efforts, sacrifices and service.

DAV does not get any funds from the federal government.  The service programs are sustained only by individual contributions of money and time.  National Service Officers (NSOs) function as attorneys-in-fact, assisting veterans and their families in filing claims for VA disability compensation and pension; vocational rehabilitation and employment; education; home loan guaranty; life insurance; death benefits; health care and much more.

They provide free services, such as information seminars, counseling and community outreach. NSOs also represent veterans and active duty military personnel before Discharge Review Boards, Boards for Correction of Military Records, Physical Evaluation Boards and other official panels.

 

Wounded Veterans Fishing Program: To provide an alternate means of therapy for our wounded returning from combat with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Physical Disabilities. Give them a stress free, non medical environment to interact with others returning from combat and those with previous combat experiences to increase their moral. Finally to provide them with a tool to reutilize in the future should relapse occur.

Wounded Warrior Project: The Wounded Warrior Project began when several individuals took small, inspired actions to help others in need.

One night while watching the evening news, a group of veterans and brothers were moved by the difficult stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq. They realized then and there that something needed to be done for these brave individuals beyond the brass bands and ticker tape parades.

The resulting objectives was to provide tangible support for the severely wounded and help them on the road to healing, both physically and mentally. What had been initially viewed as a small contribution (compared with what the warriors had sacrificed while serving our country) has becomes WWP's signature program: "WWP backpacks delivered bedside to wounded warriors."

Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit organization. The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors.

Purpose:
-
To raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women,
- To help severely injured service members aid and assist each other, and
- To provide unique, direct programs and service to meet the needs of severely injured service members.
