Military Veteran Project Accepting Letters Of Interest To Carry On The Salute Our Heroes Festival Topeka Veterans Parade Program.
For Immediate Release:
Topeka, KS (December 6, 2017) -- Military Veteran Project, a national military charity with a mission of military suicide prevention through alternative treatments and research created the Salute Our Heroes Festival & Topeka Veterans Parade as a program for community outreach. After the fifth annual event this year the MVP Board of Directors voted unanimously to transfer the program to another organization due to the alarming rate of suicides increasing and the need to focus forefront on the mission of military suicide prevention.
“The volunteers of the Military Veteran Project have created a much needed program for our Topeka community, our local veterans deserve to be recognized and honored. However, our mission as the Military Veteran Project is military suicide prevention and with the numbers of suicides increasing each day, our focus needs to be solely on ensuring the needs of our veterans are being met by continuing our work with the Department of Defense, Veterans Administration, Medical Researchers and Corporations providing alternative treatments not currently available. In 2012, when I decided to create the first ever Topeka Veterans Parade, my hopes for a couple hundred of people to help honor veterans turned out to be thousands. We have a committed committee of volunteers who have surpassed all expectations I have had and I want to personally thank Michael Majewski, Penny Jamvold, Dusty Nichols, Richelle Blume-Shannonhouse, Ron Brown, Amanda Walton & Glen King for their commitment to veterans and our Topeka Community.”
To assist with the momentous task of selecting and transitioning the Salute Our Heroes Festival & Topeka Veterans Parade to a 501c3 charity locally, a sub committee of Topeka Community leaders have been selected to process interest requests and finalize the selection process. Military Veteran Project volunteers, ambassadors and committee members will assist with handover process and transition to the new organization to assist carry on the mission to honor our military heroes.
