AMERICAN HEROES Military & Veteran

Capital Campaign Underway for Operation Veterans Outreach Initiative

Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation (WBWF) has four areas of focus. Uppermost among them is giving back to those who have served or are currently serving our country.  Military servicemen and women are American Heroes, and the WBWF will do as much as possible to honor them. One way has been hosting an annual American Heroes Day.

A venue with permanent infrastructure to support American Heroes events and many other outdoor activities is needed. To meet this need, WBWF has begun a capital campaign to raise funds to construct a large pavilion, shop, and outdoor recreation facilities for fishing, archery and shooting sports, as well as, restrooms and storage. All facets will be handicap accessible.

Property recently purchased by WBWF offers some big opportunities as a permanent venue. A dwelling exists on the property which can be used for lodging as needed for veterans and their family members.

The photos below are typical of the structures to be built. More photos will be shared when construction begins. Once the infrastructure is in place, this venue will be used as the host location for American Heroes Day and many other events sponsored by WBWF. It will eliminate the need to put up/take down temporary structures as is the current practice.

If you would like to donate to this capital campaign, we welcome your support. One way to donate using your mobile phone is by texting WBWF to 41444. Visit our Support Page and learn about ways to contribute.
