The Wounded Warriors of Collier County (WWCC) recently provided additional funding to a student veterans scholarship program at Hodges University.
The university has been given a $25,000 stipend from WWCC, a nonprofit dedicated “to raising and donating funds to worthy organizations whose mission is to empower post 9/11 veterans and their families with recovery and transition programs and services,” a posting on the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce website said.
“The continued financial support from Wounded Warriors of Collier County is instrumental in the success of our student veterans,” Christine Manson, director of the Hodges’ Dr. Peter Thomas Veterans Services Center, said in the posting. “The funds will support our post 9/11 student veterans and keep the Yellow Ribbon Program going strong.”
WWCC is committed to helping veterans in Southwest Florida with their educational needs, Dale Mullin, founder of WWCC said in the posting.
“We are honored to receive this gracious gift from Wounded Warriors of Collier County,” Hodges University President Donald Wortham said in the posting. “Their continued support of our veteran scholarship program enables Hodges University, as a military-friendly institution, to assist veterans and their dependents in pursuit of their educational goals.”
