Hub Feeder Drivers of UPS Local 705 and 710 gathered at the CACH facility (Chicago Area Consolidated Hub) on November 11, 2014 to present a check to the Wounded Heroes Foundation (WHF) in the amount of $8,550. This contribution was made through the UPS employee’s special events campaign in conjunction with United Way of Metropolitan Chicago. Anthony Nasharr, a co-founder and Board member of WHF and employee of the law firm Polsinelli, a United Way partner company, was present to accept the check and offer thanks on behalf of the foundation.
The Wounded Heroes Foundation (WHF) supports the injured men and women of our Armed Forces serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. Their traumatic injuries, which include vision and hearing loss, amputations, gunshot wounds, burns and blasts, retire these proud, brave warriors from the very military service that has until now defined them. WHF helps meet the needs of these wounded heroes and their families during the difficult recovery time by offering physical, emotional and financial support.
As many of the UPS employees are veterans, the Hub Drivers do an annual Poker Run Motorcycle ride in September in honor of the 9-11 tragedy and the brave service men and women of the U.S. Armed forces that have been wounded in the line of battle.
