The New England Institute of Technology is located in East Greenwich, RI. We are a "Yellow Ribbon" institution which means we participate in the program developed to assist veterans with tuition costs over the state tuition cap. The Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) program in particular is the education of choice for many veterans local and traveled. Therefore when deciding upon where to put forth our community service efforts, our veterans was an easy population of choice.
As a class, we are passionate about giving back to our nation’s service members – the few who fight to protect the freedom of this great country. Often times many of these inspiring individuals come home with wounds you can and can’t see, like a missing limb, combat stress, or depression. Because they’ve risked everything for us, we are committed to raising awareness and funds for these wounded service members and their caregivers.
We are proud to host an event benefiting an organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has a big, audacious goal: to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history. We are challenging ourselves to help WWP reach this vision, and we need your help.
WWP offers 20 holistic programs to wounded service members and their caregivers completely free of charge and 100% of the funds raised through the this event go directly to Wounded Warrior Project to help fuel these programs.
