SEATTLE, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- As the exclusive sponsor of the Military Child Education Coalition's Supporting the Children of the National Guard and Reserve Institute (GRI) training sessions in Seattle, TriWest Healthcare Alliance will present $25,000 to the Minuteman Emergency Assistance Fund. The contribution will help support the needs of more than 8,300 Washington National Guard members and their families.

George Cargill, market vice president for the northwest region at TriWest, will present the check to The Adjutant General of the State of Washington, Maj. Gen. Timothy Lowenberg, at the opening of the two-day GRI training sessions at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 12 at the Doubletree Hotel, 18740 International Blvd., near the Seattle airport.

"As members of civilian communities, National Guard families don't always have convenient access to the support available at military bases like McChord, Fairchild and Ft. Lewis," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. "TriWest made the contribution with the hope that we can help to bridge that gap for Washington's Guard families."

Lowenberg will also kick off the start of the training session, which will educate secondary school teachers, counselors and principals about the emotional struggles children face when a parent is deployed for military service, including how a parent's deployment may disrupt a child's mood or concentration in the classroom. Approximately 100 educators will attend the training sessions.

"TriWest continues to be a steady partner that recognizes the realities of military service and its impact on our families," Maj. Gen. Lowenberg said. "We are grateful to TriWest for this contribution, which can help make life easier to bear for Guard members and their families."

TriWest's contribution is part of its "Giving to the Guard" campaign, in which the company is providing support to the National Guard throughout its 21-state west region.
