"Proud to be an American where at least I know I'm Free and I won't forget the ones who died and gave that right to me. So I gladly stand up next to you with my banner held today because there ain't no doubt I love this land, God bless the USA"
BWL mission: "Our aim is to strengthen our ties to the local community through the gifts we deliver, the personal connections we make and the ways in which we give back. We seek to grow our brand with those whose intention is to go beyond themselves and contribute to an organization that embraces community building, societal support, innovation and entrepreneurship. Our goal is to ensure that empathy is woven throughout our company culture so that our success is measured not just by what we give, but how we love."
This Memorial day we will be connecting with 4+ Nursing homes to show gratitude to over 100 Vets! Help us celebrate those who have sacrificed for our freedom. Your Basket Sponsorship is needed at $35 per gift. The BWL team will manufacture and personally deliver the 100 gift baskets with a warm smile and kind hug! These baskets will be filled with patriotic themed gifts and treats to show love and respect to our local honorable American Veterans.
Thank you in advance for your contribution!
"May God Bless America!"
