LOUISVILLE, KY--(Marketwire - Feb 7, 2012) - FranNet, an international network of franchise consultants, is donating money to the Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP), a national nonprofit with a mission to honor and empower wounded warriors.
Several of FranNet's 100 franchise consultants are veterans themselves, and FranNet has been searching for the best way to help veterans of the war in Afghanistan and the just-concluded war in Iraq, said Jania Bailey, FranNet's president and chief operating officer.
"This is our way of recognizing their service to our country and the need for them to be brought back into society. We want to support that any way we can. It's something our group wholeheartedly embraced as the right thing to do," Bailey said. "These are men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice short of death. They need our country's support to ensure their service and sacrifice did not inhibit them from having a good life when they get home."
WWP offers an array of programs and services designed to help veterans meet the mental, physical, emotional, social and economic challenges of injuries sustained in combat. All services are free and available to veterans who sustained their injuries in combat after Sept. 11, 2001.
FranNet's interest in supporting WWP also has personal meaning for Bailey, whose son David served in the Army for a decade and works now as a civilian contractor for the military. "I realize that could be my son coming back wounded from overseas," she said. "So it's very personal to me."
