What is the mission of your organization? Operation Cherrybend’s mission is to thank wounded veterans for their courageous sacrifice to our country, show them how much we care about them now, and that we love and support them long after the uniform has come off. The more we educate the general public about the trials and ongoing challenges of wounded veterans, and veterans in general, the better understanding the public will have in order to meet their needs. Every day 22 American veterans commits suicide. Those are astounding numbers that Operation Cherrybend seeks to change.

Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists? Every year the Operation Cherrybend Team organizes and executes a major event. This 5 day long event pulls together the community and its veterans to help facilitate the stay and entertainment of up to 40 combat wounded veterans. The intent is to bring together like-minded people to form a network that helps those that are struggling and to expand their network of support through fellowship.
