Each year, Veterans Day gives us the opportunity to pause and give thanks to the men and women who have served in the armed forces for the sacrifices they have made to preserve the freedoms we take advantage of every day .
In honor of their dedication to our country, a committed group of donors worked with Two Ten to establish the Footwear Warriors Scholarship Fund for military Veterans working in the footwear industry.
“We live in a great country made safe by Veterans who have served us well in incredibly trying and sensitive times around the world,” said Kevin Donahue, Chairman, Quabaug Charitable Foundation; VAB & CCO, Vibram.
“It’s our collective responsibility to give something in return, to prepare them for life after service. That’s why we launched this fund to encourage others to donate and help make a difference in the lives of our veterans.”
Michael Hildreth is a 2015 Footwear Warriors recipient who works with veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The US Army chaplain is getting BA in Counseling so that he can build on his passion for assisting those in need.
