Corporate Citizenship Watch Supporting Military Caregivers during COVID-19 and Beyond
JULY 30, 2020
Even before COVID-19, America’s 5.5 million military and veteran caregivers - the spouses, parents, and children, caring for our wounded warriors at home, faced unique challenges in meeting the needs of their loved one and the demands of their everyday lives. These challenges have been made even more daunting by the pandemic.
In this deeply personal and inspiring webcast, meet one of our nation’s “Hidden Heroes” – a Florida-based caregiver and Elizabeth Dole Foundation Fellow, who works tirelessly to care for her husband who suffers from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and degenerative neurological issues that leave him significantly mobility impaired.
After attending the webcast, viewers will:
- Understand how organizations, such as the Elizabeth Dole Foundation and Camp Corral, have been at the front lines of offering vital resources that empower, support, and honor the millions of US military caregivers
- Receive a better understanding of the first-hand experiences of caregivers and how the pandemic has magnified their challenges
- Discover why it’s imperative that nonprofits, corporations, and philanthropy turn their attention to increasing support for military caregiver support services
- Understand the unique role corporations play in leveraging their core competencies in supporting military caregivers
Who Should Attend: CSR and corporate citizenship leaders, community relations specialists, anyone interested in learning more about military caregivers and how their organzation can support this population
