...here for those who are there for us®

Founded in 2003, Cause organizes programs that support recreation, relaxation and resiliency for thousands of injured service men and women facing months of medical care and rehabilitation far from home and family. These programs are designed to bring a bit of pain relief, relaxation and fun into what are, for many, very challenging circumstances. But they also serve a much more serious purpose: that of helping wounded warriors begin the normalization process and the re-entry to home and community as they take their long journey back to health.

Local Scout’s Service Benefits Warriors and their Families

Local Scout’s Service Benefits Warriors and their Families

Fairfax, VA (April 18, 2016) – Many middle school students choose to donate service hours with a local church, school, library or other community organization. Stephen Everard of Rocky Run Middle School opted to reach out to wounded, ill and injured service members and their families at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Stephen contacted Comfort for America’s Uniformed Services (Cause) to offer his time helping with office work, administrative support and our special event programming. He organized and put together gift packs for Caregivers and Service Members, completed our quarterly office inventory, and even helped count and label our Volunteer Recognition pins in preparation for National Volunteer Appreciation Month.

The highlight of his volunteer service was assisting with Family Fun Night at Walter Reed on April 14th. Stephen was able to interact with service members and their children as they completed craft projects and played games.

Stephen is no stranger to public service—he is also an active member of Boy Scout Troop 577 in Clifton, VA.

“We are thrilled Stephen chose to work with Cause and support our mission to help service members and their families,” said Kayla Walsh, Cause Program Director and Volunteer Coordinator. “It is a large part of our mission to interact with our service members and make sure they realize that citizens in our community recognize their service and sacrifice. Youth Volunteers like Stephen exemplify our core values!”
