We've changed
our name
but not our mission

Aid for Wounded Soldiers is now known as Aid for Wounded Warriors. We feel this better reflects our mission of providing support to wounded men and women from all branches of the armed services.

Aid for Wounded Warriors (AWW) - Our Mission

Aid for Wounded Warriors is a non-profit project that provides comfort and relief items for soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines sick, injured or wounded from service in Iraq and Afghanistan. We purchase specific items requested by Military Medical Centers, VA Medical Centers and Fisher House rehabilitation facilities each week. We also provide financial support to CrisisLink, a Hotline for wounded soldiers and their families, and Hope for the Warriors, special projects for wounded soldiers.  Many of the servicemen and women are grievously wounded and will require long hospitalization and rehabilitation. The purpose of our mission is to lift their spirits and enhance their morale as well as affect a lifetime support program.

About us
Aid for Wounded Warriors is a project of Northern Virginia-based Azalea Charities.  Our organization is made up of 100% volunteers who donate their time and talents because they believe in the mission of Azalea Charities.  Beyond minimal expenses for postage and packaging, all the funds we raise go to charitable causes.

Azalea Charities raises funds for Aid for Wounded Warriors through membership fees, private donations and sponsorships of special events such as the Marine Corps Marathon and a yearly Golf Classic.  Our financial support helps worthwhile organizations and their dedicated staffs spend less time on fundraising and more time on programs that produce positive results.

Long-Term Commitment
We hope the war against terror will be over soon and all our brave sons and daughters, wives and husbands can return home safely. Until that time, and perhaps even long after, there will still be seriously ill servicemen and women undergoing treatment and rehabilitation at Walter Reed, Bethesda and elsewhere. We will not abandon them. We will not forget them. They are our heroes and we will stand with them in their suffering, pray for them in our private moments and provide for them to the utmost of our ability.
