Helping Those in Need

 With the holiday season fast approaching, Rick Mantei is collecting articles to help those in need through Hidden Wounds. The Columbia, S.C.-based nonprofit helps active-duty, veteran, and retired members of the military deal with post-war trauma, including post traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, and other psychological and physical injuries.

Rick is helping by collecting blankets, clothing, and similar articles to be distributed by Hidden Wounds to members of the military in need. If you’d like to help, please reach out!

Hidden Wounds is a program of Project Josiah, a nonprofit organization helping veterans reintegrate into society. Caring and knowledgeable volunteers, many of them veterans themselves, have assisted service members and their families in 12 states and overseas.
