On October 8, 2009, Division 8 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians presented a donation to the Wounded Warriors Project to assist them in continuing their work of helping men and women returning from active duty in the armed services to re-acclemate themselves to post-military life. The Wounded Warriors Project is a national organization which provides medical assistance, job training, education and advocacy to members of the armed forces and their families towards the end of their tours of duty. Division 8 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians has raised supplies and funds though its annual raffle, collections and supply drives organized by Division Member Jack McDougal and manned by the members of Division 8 for the benefit of our service men and women.
During the supply drive, over 20 boxes of supplies such as socks,
shampoo, soap, candy and other necessities were collected and sent to our armed forces serving our Country. Participating in the presentation, pictured above from left to right, were Stefan Stillwell, Patrick Furlong, Neil Sullivan, Jim McCabe, Jeffery Moore (Division Treasurer), Joe McDonald (Division Vice-President), Robert Panzenbeck, Paul Hastings (Ambassador for the Wounded Warrior Project), John Hanley (DivisionPresident) and Ryan Doherty (Division Financial Secretary). The Division would like to extend it’s sincere gratitude to the men and women serving our country in the Armed Forces and the Wounded Warriors Project for their efforts in assisting them. The Division would also like to extend its thanks to Page One for hosting this event.
