Party With A Purpose Foundation’s
SKYDIVING FOR VETERANS
serves local Veteran charity organizations.
Among those for 2015 are the Historical Outreach Foundation and Oregon Military Museum, local Veterans of Foreign Wars Posts, Team Red White and Blue and other local Veteran Causes.
The Historical Outreach Foundation honors members and veterans of the armed forces through several programs. The Brigadier General James B. Thayer Oregon Military Museum at Camp Withycombe in Clackamas, Oregon, shares Oregon’s rich military heritage from the Tribal Wars to today’s campaigns with engaging exhibits, interpretive programs and special events. Education Outreach offers curriculum-based, hands-on presentations to schools throughout Oregon and SW Washington, educating 6,000 students, annually. Reaching across generations to share from beyond our locality, the Veterans’ Legacies Project is an online database recording and preserving personal accounts of veterans throughout history; with key partnerships, these stories are shared with over 10,000,000 unique viewers, annually. Remembering the Greatest Generation, the Oregon World War II Memorial continues to honor the service men and women who served during WWII.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) mission is to foster camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts. To serve our veterans, the military, and our communities. To advocate on behalf of all veterans. The VFW Vision is to ensure that veterans are respected for their service, always receive their earned entitlements, and are recognized for the sacrifices they and their loved ones have made on behalf of this great country. And the VFW’s Core Values are to: Always put the interests of our members first; Treat donors as partners in our cause; Promote patriotism; Honor military service; Ensure the care of veterans and their families; Serve our communities; Promote a positive image of the VFW; and Respect the diversity of veteran opinions. Party With A Purpose Foundation’s Skydiving For Veterans Event helps raise awareness about the VFW and connect those who can help to local VFW Posts.
Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Their chapters and communities deliver consistent, local opportunities for veterans and the community to connect through physical and social activity. And it is so much more than running. They host regular fitness activities, social gatherings, and participate in local races and events together. Team RWB (Red, White and Blue) has an eagle, our National Bird for their logo representing the organization. Team RWB practices what they refer to as “The Eagle Ethos”, which is based upon six words that uniquely characterize Team RWB … passion, people, positivity, commitment, camaraderie, and community. For more information about Team RWB’s Portland, Oregon Chapter, please visit their website.
Other local Veterans’ Causes. Party With A Purpose Foundation’s mission is to provide giving opportunities to local charities. With our Events, we raise funds and awareness for select local charities. The Skydiving for Veterans Event will do this for the Historical Outreach Foundation and Brigadier General James B. Thayer Oregon Military Museum and local VFW Posts. And it also will help the Foundation provide funds and awareness for other Veteran based causes, like Team RGB as well as assisting in underwriting the expenses of a Boy Scout’s Eagle Scout project to create a Plaque to recognize Veterans as well as a Medallion in front of each U.S. Military Veteran’s grave at the Pleasant View Cemetery in Clackamas County. The funds raised at Skydiving For Veterans go to help local Veteran-related Causes. If you would like more information on being involved in something great, please call 503-201-8839.
