North Central Chapter Supports ALS Research

On Sunday, June 14 the North Central Chapter of PLUS volunteered at the Young Faces of ALS Corntoss Challenge at CHS Field in St. Paul, Minnesota. Volunteers from the chapter helped organize and run the Corntoss Challenge, a fundraising event benefiting ALS-TDI (Therapy Development Institute). The event was tremendous, with more than 100 participants and $30,000 raised!

Thanks to all who volunteered to make this event such a success!

HOPE Atlanta – Southeast Chapter Charity 2015

The PLUS Southeast Chapter is pleased to support HOPE Atlanta, the recipient of the chapter’s 2015 Chapter Charity Grant.

Chapter leaders delivered a grant check for $2,500 to the organization, which will use the money to support their 6,000 homeless or at-risk clients. Of every dollar given to HOPE Atlanta, 94 cents goes toward its mission; so of the $2,500 grant, approximately $2,350 will go toward the work HOPE does this year.

Southeast Chapter Charity Grant – Combat Wounded Veteran Challenge

The PLUS Southeast Chapter recently made a grant  to the Combat Wounded Veteran Challenge, LLC in Tarpon Springs, Florida as part of the 2015 PLUS Foundation Chapter Charity program. The $2,500 grant will be used by the organization to advance their mission.

Combat Wounded Veteran Challenge  provides support to wounded veterans and their families through rehabilitative therapeutic expeditions (challenges) as teams obtain their objectives and know they are not alone, while providing encouragement to overcome limitations and embrace life. The organization also offers support for those suffering traumatic brain injuries, post traumatic stress, orthotics and/or prosthetics.
