November 11. 2019, St Louis MO: The Boeing Company, the leader in the aerospace industry, announces a $100,000 grant in the support and expansion of the availability of the programs and services H.E.R.O.E.S. Care has to offer to all Missouri and Illinois military service members and their families. Boeing has committed more than $50 million in grants to more than 500 nonprofit organizations across the globe. The H.E.R.O.E.S. Care Hometown Support Program consists of a network of highly trained and uniquely qualified caregivers who attach themselves to military family members and bring the resources of the HSP and those of the community to address the complex stressors associated with service to our Nation.
"We at H.E.R.O.E.S. Care are extremely grateful for the continued support of the Boeing Company through their Boeing Inspires charitable initiative", remarked Jon Jerome, president and CEO of H.E.R.O.E.S. Care. "It is fitting this grant is being announced on the very day we honor and remember our Nation's heroes."
This grant marks the second year that Boeing has provided significant support for the work of H.E.R.O.E.S. Care, a national military and Veteran family non-profit based in St. Louis.
"Boeing is proud to support our military and their family members,," said Brittany Douglas, Community Investor for the St. Louis Region. "We've really amplified our giving locally in recent years, expanding our programming to include rehabilitation programs for veterans suffering from mental and physical ailments. We really appreciate strong community partners, like H.E.R.O.E.S. Care, for providing so much support to our local heroes."
