Group Raising Money to Build Treatment Centers for Troops
A group is providing hope and healing to American troops through its fundraising efforts.
Battle Saint founder Cynthia LeMay explained today on “America’s Newsroom” how her organization is raising money to help open nine “Intrepid Spirit Centers” across the nation.
The centers will provide service members a free, holistic approach to treating PTSD and traumatic brain injuries. The project requires more than $100 million, half of which has been raised already. Three centers have been built, and two more are under construction.
LeMay’s organization, Battle Saint, was founded by members of her family who knew they wanted to make a difference. The organization makes handmade bracelets which feature saints relevant to the military, as well as key fobs, name tags and combat scarves. A contribution from each purchase goes to building the Intrepid Spirit Centers.
LeMay said that military members need help now more than ever as the war winds down. She asked Americans to donate to Battle Saint this Memorial Day, remarking that people can help save a life for as little as $10.
