LOCAL 501(c)3 SEEKS FACILITY TO PROVIDE GYM FOR DISABLED VETS
KINGWOOD, TX, 12 May, 2012:
American Archangels, Inc. , a local 501(c)3 nonprofit, is seeking a warehouse / garage / abandoned business in the Kingwood area to convert into an ADA compliant gym facility for the benefit of wounded veterans returning from Iraq & Afghanistan.
It doesnt need to be pretty, as weve seen a lot worse while stationed downrange. We just need a place for our disabled vets to be able to work out without the worry of environmental stressors. Although 1000 sq ft would suffice, we are requesting approximately 2000 to 5000 sq ft of space in order to properly outfit our gym facility.
Several disabled veterans returning from Iraq & Afghanistan with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, or Social Anxiety Disorder may have difficulty working out in civilian gyms. They may also experience difficulty in attaining professional physical therapy on a regular basis. American Archangels would like to provide free personal training and physical therapy services for warriors with these afflictions.
They are still in the initial phase of this project and have received roughly $50,000 worth of donated gym equipment which is currently being stored through corporate sponsorship of PODS of Houston until they are able to attain a facility to convert into their gym.
Items requested include rubber mats, commercial grade gym equipment, handicap accessibility devices, physical therapy equipment, mobility aids (walkers, wheelchairs, scooters, walking canes, etc.)
Contact Max at (832)233-9954 if there is anything you can do to assist them. All contributions may be eligible for tax deduction. Please visit their organizations website at www.AmericanArchangels.org for further information.
