Cumberland Community Foundation awards the USO of North Carolina $5,000 grant to support Warrior Reset
In 2017, the Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc., awarded the USO of North Carolina a $5,000 grant to support the USO of NC’s Warrior Reset program. The program provides currently serving members of the military with hands on training and tools to better lead and support their comrades.
Throughout the year, the grant supported service members and their families attending the program stationed in the Cumberland County area. By attending the Warrior Reset the service members learned how to reestablish and improve psychological readiness, physical and nutritional health, financial literacy and relationships.
“Our Warrior Reset program would not be possible without support from our generous partners, like the Cumberland Community Foundation,” said Kelli Willoughby, Director of Warrior and Family Programs at the USO of North Carolina. “The Cumberland Community Foundation’s support helped service members from our local area learn critical, life changing and even life-saving skills and resources, making a real impact on their lives and the lives of their fellow service members.”
