This holiday season, thousands of white cotton shirts were donated to William Beaumont Army Medical Center and its connected VA center via Hike for Mental Health. The president from Hike for Mental Health, Leo Walker, was extremely happy to see our AYLUS volunteers donate clothes and participate in his organization’s annual PTSD walk in Pearland.
AYLUS Pearland is appreciative of every single sacrifice that the U.S. military has made to keep our country safe, and is always willing to help alleviate their post-combative years in society in any way possible. Our participation in this year’s AYLUS Veterans Appreciation Event has left our members with an even greater burning conviction to commit to civic engagement and an thorough understanding of the sacrifices that must be made to keep Americans free.
The conclusion of this year’s Veterans Day event marks AYLUS Pearland’s second annual partnering with Hike for Mental Health. We hope that we can continue to participate in the PTSD walk at Pearland in the coming years to show that we are a volunteering organization that serves a broad range of duties with consistency, passion, and empathy.
