Maritime Community Raises $ for Troops

Monday, October 26, 2009

The community of American maritime carriers and operating unions in Washington, DC has raised $15,000 to help build specially adapted homes for American veterans who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home from Iraq or Afghanistan with serious disabilities and injuries. 

These funds will be donated to Homes for Our Troops, a non-profit 501©(3) charitable organization based in Taunton, Massachusetts.  Half of these contributions are corporate donations from Matson, American Roll-on Roll-off Carriers, Maersk, APL, K&L Gates, Horizon Lines, and the American Waterways Operators.  The other half is from individuals who represent maritime interests in the Nation’s Capital in various capacities.
