GRSi has generated donations of over $125,000 towards veterans and warrior support charities. We encourage all employees to make a difference in the communities in which we work and live and to help those in need. Whether at a company-wide event such as the GRSi Annual Charity Golf Tournament, contributing to the U.S. Marine Corps Toys-for-Tots program, or as an individual volunteering with the United Services Organization (USO), we support those who support others.
Come out and play for a cause! Each year GRSi raises a donation for a local charitable organization through our Golf Tournament, which is held each Spring. Our recent tournaments have included:
Raised more than $17,000 for Operation Second Chance. Operation Second Chance (OSC) helps our heroes move on with dignity and love. They provide emergency financial assistance for a wide range of needs from rent and utility payments to travel and groceries. They also provide retreats and day trips to get our Veterans out of the hospital, and offer caregiver spa days, family bowling nights, and so much more.
Raised more than $12,000 for Operation First Response. Operation First Response, Inc (OFR) provides services from the onset of injuries or illness, throughout their recovery period and along their journey from military life to the civilian world. These services include a Wounded Warrior Financial Assistance program which provides aid based on the needs of the family; The Last Mission Project which provides support for those suffering from PTSD; OFR Backpacks which are sent to combat support hospitals in Iraq and Afghanistan to support our wounded soldiers who arrive with no belongings; and COT Quilts which are handmade blankets and quilts provided for our wounded soldiers.
Raised more than $13,000 for the Special Operations Warriors Fund. Created in 1980, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation is devoted to providing a college education to every child who has lost a parent servicing in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps during an operational or training mission under the U.S. Special Operations Command. This includes over 70,000 military special operations and support personnel assigned to units throughout the United States and around the world. They have helped more than 190 children of fallen Special Operations warriors graduate from college.
