Monmouth 2 Raises $8500 For Wounded Warriors
Monmouth 2 has taken on supporting Wounded Warriors as a Christian Charity cause. The effort started several years ago as a way to raise the funds to join in with Bergen 32 to support a Tank Pull event and has grown into one of the Division’s yearly causes.
The division members rise funds with a raffle, canning donations, merchandise sales, and a fund raiser benefit night. This year provided many roadblocks including rained out canning events and difficulties concerning the raffle. Despite these challenges Chairman Jim Shaw was able to rally the support of the membership to have another successful year.
Funds raised were used to support the Wounded Warrior Tank Pull in Clifton, donations to a local wounded serviceman, and to support the Run With Dennis (http://www.runwithdennis.org) event for the Lt Dennis Zilinski Foundation. Organizations like Lt Dennis Zilinski Foundation provide assistance to Wounded Warriors as their full time mission and have the contacts and resources to provide direct support to the men and women that gave for our country.
