I’m thrilled to announce that the Patton Veterans Project has received a grant in the amount of $64,000 from Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), a non-profit veteran service organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. The grant will immediately expand our ability to offer our unique filmmaking workshops to more military bases and other locations around the nation and eventually abroad.
“The WWP grant program allows us to support the good work and expertise of a broad spectrum of organizations that are dedicated to meeting the needs of injured service members,” said Steven Nardizzi, executive director, Wounded Warrior Project. “We are very proud of the collaboration and commitment that the grant program fosters to help ensure this generation of injured service members is the most successful and well-adjusted in our nation’s history.”
In this second year of operation, the WWP Grants Program continues to work with organizations that provide injured service members with unique, specialized programs and services, often in remote service areas. During two review cycles each year, WWP carefully selects the grant recipients, and to date has provided support to over 70 organizations nationwide.
Patton Veterans Project is honored to be among the WWP Grant recipients this year. As positive feedback continues to accumulate about the benefits of our filmmaking workshops, we’re now able to meet the growing demand for our workshops at military bases around the country. The momentum is exciting and rewarding!
