Each year, the WFTP Car Club selects a worthy organization to benefit from our annual Labor Day Car Show. This year's choice is the the "Connected Warrior Foundation (CWF)".
A tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization, the Connected Warrior Foundation (CWF) was founded in Maryland in 2012. Their charter is to fund projects and programs and support activities that successfully empower wounded veterans, improving their quality of life by keeping them connected to their families, friends, community and the world.
It is their intention to continue to support wounded vets by raising awareness and support through such means as technology (existing as well as innovative), events, blogs, resources, and community outreach. With the generous contributions of individual donors and in partnership with Amazon.com, in 2012 they delivered Kindle Fire devices to wounded veterans at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, San Antonio Military Medical Center and Balboa Naval Hospital. They are proud to announce a partnership with Google to provide Nexus tablet devices now as well. Their aim is connection—both human and technological—and the provision of much-needed support and resources.
They strive to improve the quality of life for wounded veterans by facilitating increased connection to their families, friends, community and the world.
Who CWF Serve
They serve veterans—whether newly-injured or on the path of recovery over an extended period of time—who have suffered severe physical and/or emotional invisible wounds (PTSD) received during the course of combat on behalf of the United States of America. They provide active support to the families of those veterans as well.
