Who They Are:
KC is an American personal care corporation that specializes in the production of mostly paper-based consumer products. They have a program within their company called “SALUTE” and their mission is to strengthen KC and our communities by harnessing the unique experiences of veterans and the power of passionate supporters of veteran causes. They hold several events each year to fundraise for local Veteran Organizations within our community.
Soldier’s Wish is the focus of this event. Their mission is to identify unmet needs of veterans of military service regardless of branch or rank and identify or provide resources to meet those needs by providing needed support directly to the veteran service members and/or their families in order that such service members can lead normal and productive lives. “Veterans” may be those who have served only a short time and are still on active duty, those who served a single enlistment, those who were discharged due to their wounds, and those who retired from active duty. In addition, Soldier’s Wish will educate the public about the needs of the veteran’s and active duty communities and encourage the public to participate in meeting those needs by volunteering and other means.
