Rescheduled dedication Dec. 12 for Pen Fed Home at Bull Run Warrior Retreat in Haymarket

The PenFed Foundation and Serve Our Willing Warriors (SOWW) will host a grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony and tour of the PenFed Foundation Home at Warrior Retreat at Bull Run, on Wednesday, Dec. 12 at 11 a.m. in Haymarket. The home will provide respite for wounded warriors, their families and caregivers.

James Schenck, President and CEO, PenFed Credit Union and CEO, PenFed Foundation, was quoted in a news release as saying, “The fight does not end on the battlefield for our wounded warriors. When they come home, far too many of our wounded warriors spend months, sometimes even years, undergoing surgeries and long hospital stays. The Warrior Retreat gives them a break from hospitals and a chance to fully recover. The PenFed Foundation Home to Serve Our Willing Warriors will host hundreds of wounded warriors and their guests each year to provide a week of normalcy where these brave men and women can reconnect as a family, refresh their minds and renew their spirits in this beautiful place.”

The PenFed Foundation’s $300,000 donation to build the retreat home doubles the capacity at Warrior Retreat at Bull Run, enabling SOWW to serve more than 500 wounded warriors and their families, caregivers, and guests per year. The PenFed Foundation Home is the second home on SOWW’s property, and each home hosts one family at a time for up to six days.

SOWW serves the needs of wounded warriors and their families through “Warrior Getaways.”  During their stay, recovering warriors and their families are able to participate in 70 different activities and programs offered through local service partners, including helicopter tours, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and 5-star chef-prepared meals. Warriors and their families can also partake in physical and canine therapy and family counseling.
