SeniorLiving.Net to Support Honor Flight Network
By Shelley Laurel
September, 2009 – Washington, D.C. SeniorLiving.Net is proud to announce their support of The Honor Flight Network. From now through the end of 2009, SeniorLiving.Net will make a donation each time our Care Advisors help a senior move in to a senior care community. To kick-off the campaign, SeniorLiving.Net is making a donation in honor of National Assisted Living Week.
The Honor Flight Network is an organization that aims to help every veteran visit Washington, D.C. on an all-expense paid trip. This will give veterans the opportunity to visit the memorial that is dedicated to the war they fought for the United States of America.
“We thought it was a great way to recognize the dedicated efforts of the 60 assisted living partners we work with every day,” explains Todd Walrath, CEO and Founder of SeniorLiving.Net. “The Honor Flight Network was the perfect choice for our first charitable partnership. We work with older adults and their families. Many of those making the move to senior living are veterans. We chose The Honor Flight Network because they make it possible for veterans to travel here to Washington, D.C. to see the memorials dedicated to their service. There is no charge to veterans for the trip.”
According to Judy Lemmons, Director of Public Relations for Honor Flight, “We have approximately 6,000 veterans on our national ‘anxiously waiting’ list. There are another 15,000 on the waiting lists of the 73 hubs across the country in 33 states. Sadly, within a decade, this generation of American Heroes will be lost to time. Our honorary advisor, Senator Bob Dole said it best when he said, “the character of a nation can well be determined by how it pays homage to its heroes.””
“We hope our support of The Honor Flight Network will help generate awareness for this dedicated organization and make it possible for everyone who served to be recognized and visit Washington, DC. We thought this was a great way to support veterans and the city where we work and live.” commented Walrath.
