New York, NY (June 22, 20222) – RV Retailer, LLC (“RVR”) today announced that throughout the month of May, Motor Home Specialist (MHS) raised $100,000 through the sales of motor homes for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a not-for-profit organization and national leader which serves United States military personnel experiencing the invisible wounds of war: traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress (PTS).
“There is nothing more fulfilling than helping and supporting these military families.” says Jon Ferrando, President and CEO of RV Retailer. “We are excited to continue these donations and work alongside the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund to be sure our heroes have access to the care they need across the entire country.”
The RVR and MHS donation will support the IFHF’s mission of building ten Intrepid Spirit Centers around the country that diagnose and treat TBI and PTS in U.S. service members. Currently, Intrepid Spirit Centers are operational at Fort Belvoir, VA; Camp Lejeune, NC; Fort Campbell, KY; Fort Bragg, NC; Fort Hood, TX; Camp Pendleton, CA; Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA; Eglin Air Force Base, FL; and a center at Fort Carlson, CO will open next month. Construction on the final center at Fort Bliss, TX will begin by the end of this year. Each Intrepid Spirit Center costs approximately $13 million to construct and equip with the latest in brain technology and treatment facilities and spans 25,000 square feet.
“We are so fortunate to have incredible partners like RV Retailer and Motor Home Specialist, as well as its generous customers, whose continued support has given us the ability to help so many men and women of the Armed Forces who suffer from TBI and PTS,” said David Winters, President of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. “The $100,000 will go directly toward building our tenth Intrepid Spirit Center, in Texas.”
About the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF) serves United States military personnel experiencing the invisible wounds of war: traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress (PTS), the signature wounds of our nation’s most recent wars. In response to this critical need, IFHF is building a series of ten specially designed treatment facilities, named Intrepid Spirit Centers, at military bases across the country. Within these centers, service members receive the most advanced and proven care to address the complex symptoms of TBI and PTS. More than 90% of service members treated at the Intrepid Spirit Centers are able to continue on active duty and enjoy a full life. Eight Intrepid Spirit Centers have been built and are open at military bases around the country. A ninth will open this summer and construction on the tenth will begin by the end of 2022. Each new Intrepid Spirit Center will provide care to thousands of service members suffering the devastating effects of TBI and PTS. Each center costs approximately $13 million to build and equip.
