At 12 Keys Rehab, we believe in supporting our veterans. We are happy to announce the completion of our Facebook initiative to donate $15,000 for the purchase of an all terrain wheelchair for a United States Military Veteran. Thanks to our Facebook fans, we were able complete our 25,000 fan goal and will donate $15,000 to the Independence Fund, a non-profit organization that seeks to help severely injured veterans receive the tools and therapy they need to recover.
Veterans have fought for our country and its people, and they have made sacrifices for us. At 12 Keys Rehab, we couldn’t think of a better way to help than to give them back something they lost. We wanted to know that our donation would directly impact a veteran’s life as they have impacted ours. So we decided the perfect recipient of our donation would be the Independence Fund, an all volunteer non-profit organization with a board of directors consisting of combat veterans.
