WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT ACCEPTS DONATION
The Spokane Chiefs and Washington Army National Guard made a donation to Wounded Warrior Project in the amount of $2,500 in a pre-game ceremony on Wednesday, March 7th. The money raised was a portion of the proceeds from a silent auction of specially designed military themed jerseys the Chiefs wore on Saturday, January 28th when the Chiefs hosted the Kootenay Ice. Spokane wore the jerseys to honor members of the Armed Services.
Ian Anderson, a former United States Marine and Purple Heart winner, was on hand with several members of the Wounded Warrior Project on Wednesday night the donation from SSgt T.J. Gaia, a Wounded Warrior Alumni, and SFC James Kane of the Washington Army National Guard in a pre-game ceremony. Anderson is currently serving Wounded Warrior Project, and his fellow wounded warrior alumni, as a Certified Peer Mentor in the Spokane area.
