Local company donates $11,000 to help veterans suffering from PTSD, trauma
13 WHAM- A donation delivered Friday aims to help local veterans in need.
Warrior Salute Veteran Services provides aid to veterans suffering from PTSD and other forms of trauma.
Friday, Regional Distributors, Inc. presented a check for $11,000 to the organization.
It’s something that Regional Distributors has done annually for several years. President and CEO Tracy Scalen and Executive Vice President David Scalen have many family members who served our country.
“My dad was a World War II vet that suffered quite a bit and spent the last few years of his life in a VA hospital,” said Mr. Scalen, “and it was from that we recognized there was additional need for services for vets.”
The program is run through CDS Life Transitions. President and CEO Sankar Sewnauth says the gift will go a long way to help veterans.
“We’re able to give them the treatment they need, provide housing, provide food, transportation, and then we send them back into the community at no cost to them,” he said. “Warrior Salute is vitally needed in our community right now.”
