(Note: The Warrior Foundation will continue to accept donations throughout the holiday).
The Armstrong & Getty Show concluded a week of on-air fundraising for The Warrior Foundation/Freedom Station.
At the end of the five-day call-to-action, loyal A&G listeners brought in more than $500,000 for the charity, which works to help veterans recover both physically and mentally from service injuries.
During the Christmas season, The Warrior Foundation/Freedom Station buys plane tickets for injured warriors so they can spend the holidays at home—with their families.
“I have never seen a response like this before”, says Sandy Lehmkuhler, the president and founder of the organization. “Our heartfelt thanks to Armstrong & Getty and their generous listeners for choosing to donate—those funds will change the lives of our troops."
“We need to help these incredible men and women get over their rough patch,” says Armstrong & Getty’s Joe Getty. “And, we really respect the staff of the Warrior Foundation--who work on a volunteer basis to help the troops”.
“For many members of our audience, The Warrior Foundation was a brand new thing”, says Jack Armstrong. “We are awestruck and deeply appreciative of our audience for supporting The Warrior Foundation/Freedom Station”.
