COLORADO – Colorado Veterans Project (CVP), one of the largest veteran-related nonprofits in Colorado, today announced that it has made monetary donations to three local nonprofit organizations, including Honor Bell Foundation, Operation Equine and Audie L. Murphy Infantry Museum.
CVP hosted its Freedom 4-Miler virtual run in July and its first Let Freedom Swing golf tournament in September, which raised funds to make it possible for CVP to support local veterans and veteran-related organizations. CVP donated $4,500 to the Honor Bell Foundation, an organization that offers a final salute for deceased military veterans through the slow ringing of a ceremonial bell; $2,500 to Operation Equine, which facilitates unique, therapeutic experiences with horses that empowers participants to cultivate healthy relationships and feel better; and $2,500 to Audie L. Murphy Infantry Museum, a living history exhibit that serves as a traveling museum to inspire and educate students on the United States’ most decorated soldier, Audie L. Murphy.
Past benefactors of CVP’s events have included Stripes to Bars, a charity that enables qualified veterans to earn Federal Aviation Administration certificates; and Healing Warriors, a program that provides non-narcotic therapy to help address pain, sleep and PTSD for service members and their families. CVP hosts events throughout the year, including its annual Memorial Day Run and March that collects donations and nonperishable foods for local veterans who are experiencing homelessness and the official Denver Veterans Day Run, Parade and Festival, which serves as an appreciation event for military service members.
