Local BB&T Branch Partners with Healing Heroes Network

Wanted to share some great news. As most of you visiting Hero Giveaways know, 100% of proceeds from our giveaways go directly to Healing Heroes Network and its mission of healing injured service members. The non-profit supporting military families and wounded veterans offers a number of programs.

Now, two of those programs are gaining a boost with the support of a Tampa Bay, Florida BB&T bank and its Lighthouse Project. Those two programs are the Tablets for Heroes initiative for veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), and the Morale Packages programs which sends care packages to our brave service members deployed overseas.

Below is the Healing Heroes news release sharing this exciting news. And let us not forget to thank BB&T bank's Lighthouse Project for supporting our troops with this partnership!

Lighthouse Project with BB&T Bank

Healing Heroes Network is excited to announce our upcoming partnership with BB&T Bank!

The Lighthouse Project is an initiative that BB&T embarked on several years ago, a company wide program to make a positive difference in the communities where BB&T branches are located. When a local Tampa Bay branch contacted us at Healing Heroes Network, asking us to be a part of this amazing project, we were thrilled to accept the offer! The Lighthouse Project will be supporting two crucial Healing Heroes Network programs:Tablets For Heroes and Morale Packages.

Tablets For Heroes is a program committed to helping veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), after serving in Iraq or Afghanistan since 9/11/01, by providing them with tablet computers for cognitive re-development, memory assistance and much more. The Morale Package program strives to show our service men and women stationed overseas that we care and support them, by sending care packages to military bases deployed abroad with some of the comfort items from home that we take for granted, spreading hope and boosting morale among their bases.

The Lighthouse Project will be donating a number of tablets to Healing Heroes Network for the Tablets For Heroes program, and will also be purchasing and putting together Morale Packages for HHN to send overseas to military bases deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are so excited to have this kind of support and partnership, right here in our own backyard!

If you live in the Tampa Bay area and have a loved one serving overseas, we would love to send their base a Morale Package, sponsored by BB&T Bank and The Lighthouse Project! Or, if you are a service member in the Tampa Bay area suffering from PTSD and/or TBI, and could benefit from the use of a tablet computer for cognitive assistance, we would love to get you approved for a Tablet. Please contact Healing Heroes Network at (727) 781-4376, or email us at info@healingheroes.org.

Thank you to the team at BB&T Bank!
