Mopar Club of San Diego’s Beneficiaries
The Mopar Club of San Diego has supported military personnel and their families since we began holding the All-American Car Show in 1999. For many years, we have supported Homefront San Diego and USO San Diego with net proceeds from our shows. In 2015, we added Wounded Warrior Homes and Warrior Foundation Freedom Station as beneficiaries. Last year, we were able to donate a total of $10,000 to these four organizations that are so dedicated to serving our military personnel and their families.
Homefront San Diego
Homefront San Diego is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization partnered with our 501(c)3 partner, The Navy League of San Diego. Our mission is simple: We provide a hand-up to the military families in their time of need. Homefront San Diego will help with everything, from emergency food and gas, to car repairs, furniture, computers and whatever else a family may need. All of these services are available to lower enlisted families, deployed or not. Everything is grant-based and will never need to be repaid.
USO San Diego
Since 1941, USO San Diego has been service Active Duty, Reserve, Guard and military families. Our vision is to be the premier USO-chartered center in the United States, providing morale, recreation, entertainment services and a home-away-from-home to Active Duty, Reserve, Guard and military families stationed locally or transiting through San Diego. Our mission: USO San Diego strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.
Wounded Warrior Homes
Wounded Warrior Homes is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides affordable housing and resources for veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Post Traumatic Brain Injury. We are citizens, like you, who deeply care about our nation and appreciate the sacrifices of those who have served in armed conflict to protect our country, our nation’s interests, our people and those in other nations.
Warrior Foundation—Freedom Station
Warrior Foundation—Freedom Station assists four main groups of warriors: the seriously injured just returning home from war; those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or Post Traumatic Brain Injury; those undergoing physical or occupational therapy; and warriors who have been medically retired and remain in our community. To serve this last group in particular, we pioneered a new approach and opened Freedom Station, a unique recovery transition center and housing facility that provides injured warriors with the acclimation time, guidance and resources to successfully make the transition from military service to civilian life.
