RV Retailer, LLC (RVR) today announced that Motor Home Specialist would donate $500 for every motor home it sells in May to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF).
The IFHF is a non-profit organization helping U.S. military personnel with Invisible Wounds of War, such as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS).
“Donny O’Banion and Motor Home Specialist have been strong supporters of Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund over the past five years, raising over $675,000 to support this amazing cause. We have a large number of associates and customers that are current military members and veterans, and we owe a deep debt of gratitude to all of them for their service to our great country. The work done by IFHF has helped many military veterans, and we want to help expand this support to individuals that have sacrificed so much for their country,” Jon Ferrando, CEO and President of RVR, said.
“We are honored to continue our support of IFHF in May,” said Donny O’Banion, President of Motor Home Specialist (MHS). “We have an incredible number of associates, customers, and family members that are veterans in need of support. We look forward to a great month of May to maximize our donation to help build the Intrepid Spirit Center in Texas.”
All the donations made by RVR and MHS will go to the IFHF’s mission of building ten Intrepid Spirit Centers around the country that diagnose and treat Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and psychological health conditions in the U.S. service members.
Intrepid Spirit centers are currently operational at Fort Belvoir, VA; Camp Lejeune, NC; Fort Campbell, KY; Fort Bragg, NC; and Fort Hood, TX; Camp Pendleton, CA; Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA; Eglin Air Force Base, FL.
A center at Fort Carlson, CO, will open later this summer, while the construction of the final center at Fort Bliss, TX, will start at the end of the year. Each Intrepid Spirit Center spans 25,000 square feet and costs around $13 million to build and equip the latest brain technology and treatment facilities.
“We are so fortunate to have incredible partners like RV Retailer and Motor Home Specialist, as well as its generous customers, whose continued support has given us the ability to help so many men and women of the Armed Forces who suffer from TBI and other psychological health conditions,” said David Winters, President of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. “The money raised from MHS’s sales in May will go directly toward building our tenth Intrepid Spirit Center in Texas.”
