CHEVY CHASE, Md., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Garland Miller, President of the Combat Soldiers Recovery Fund, announced that there will be a Congressional reception to benefit the Fund on Wednesday evening, September 26, 2007. According to Ms. Miller, "100% of all donations to the Fund go directly to wounded soldiers or their immediate family, with no reductions for overhead or any other costs."
Miller further stated that, "the Fund has distributed $70,000 so far and is now able to provide $300 per soldier. The money goes right to the soldiers to spend in whatever way they want." Miller continued, "This money might help with everyday family expenses, pay airfare for family members to come see the soldier at Walter Reed, or even pay for dinners out when they visit. To qualify, all a soldier has to do is fill out a simple request card."
The Fund has provided money to 235 of the 600 soldiers at Walter Reed Hospital, and additional contributions will enable the Fund to meet the needs of the over 60,000 injured soldiers around the country."
The Combat Soldiers Recovery Fund is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2007. It has received 501(c)(3) status from the Internal Revenue service which makes all contributions to the Fund tax deductible.
