April 8, 2021

To combat the devastating impact of COVID-19 for veterans and their families, today the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) announced a $536,000 investment in stimulus funding to 62 local partners. “Food is such a basic human need.

When we help fund resources like a grocery store gift card or a box of farm fresh produce, it’s a way of affirming: ‘We’ve got your six. Your community is looking out for you, and we’re going to get through this together,’” said Anne Marie Dougherty, CEO of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. More Info.
