1-800-Radiator & A/C Founds Charity for Injured Military Service Members

The 1-800-Radiator & A/C franchise, the fastest growing franchise in the automotive industry, is proud to announce the creation of the 1-800-Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting injured military service members through raising money and awareness for those who have so bravely served our country. 

The Foundation has partnered with the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) — a non-profit service organization committed to empowering injured veterans and their families— to provide support and assistance for our heroic veterans and their loved ones. Through free programs and services, WWP aims to improve the physical, mental, and financial wellbeing of injured service members, as well as their families and caregivers. 

To date, WWP has served approximately 89,000 warriors who have endured a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound while on duty on or after September 11, 2001. The organization has also provided services to nearly 19,000 family members and caregivers of these heroic warriors. These programs and services have included recovery programs, peer support groups, and higher education programs, trainings, and employment assistance services to promote long-term financial stability.
