Since 2011, Federal Ammunition has supported Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) and the nonprofit’s free programs and services through an annual contribution to the Minnesota Wounded Warrior Charity Golf event. To date the company’s total contribution is just shy of $248,000 dollars.

Wounded veterans face significant challenges when they return to civilian life, and through the generous support of donors and corporate partners, WWP provides support during their recoveries, wherever they are in that journey.

“I’m proud of this program,” said Rick Stoeckel, Federal Ammunition’s shotshell product director. “When our wounded heroes return, the needs are great and Federal is proud to assist in any way that we can, and the consumers have responded by purchasing the product that supports Wounded Warrior Project in our backyard of Minnesota and throughout the United States.”

WWP is a 501(c)3 non-profit established in 2003 by a group of veterans in Virginia.  The organization’s mission, “…is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors who incurred a physical or mental injury, illnesses, or wound, co-incident to your military service on or after September 11, 2001.” Family members and caregivers of wounded warriors may also be eligible for many of the programs managed by the organization.

Services it offers include information on veteran’s benefits and help applying for them. In addition, there are independence programs, family support, peer support and an outreach effort designed to help alleviate the isolation so common to those who served in uniform as they leave the service. Career counseling, networking, physical and mental health programs and much more are available. The organization also hosts a four-day Soldier Ride with fellow veterans and even provides bicycles at no cost—including adaptive models—for participants who don’t own or cannot afford one.

Veterans can also become a WWP Alumni, at no charge, on the organization’s special webpage. Enrolling helps them to connect with others or learn more about resources that are available.
