American Red Cross
During Sport Clips’ September 2015 Saving Lives Never Looked so Good! Campaign, the American Red Cross red cell units reached 96.8% of the donation goal and platelet collections reached 97.8% of goal which represented a 3.9% increase year over year. Our commitment to the American Red Cross continues annually, and Sport Clips’ Team Members and clients understand that the need for blood and platelets never goes away, and is often drastically increased when disasters strike. We share in the desire to give back to the community in which we live and work to help others. For more information on lifesaving blood donations please consider Giving the Gift of Life.
Sport Clips’ “Help A Hero” campaign has raised more than $3 million to help deployed and hospitalized U.S. service members call home through the Veterans of Foreign Wars’ Operation Uplink™ and provide scholarships to active-duty service members and veterans through the VFW’s “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” program. By providing scholarships for use at post-secondary schools, including trade schools, our goal is to make the transition from a military career to the civilian workforce a little easier.
Ageless Aviation Dreams
Sport Clips is the primary sponsor for The Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation, a non-profit organization established and dedicated to honoring seniors and United States military veterans. Through donations, the foundation provides once-in-a-lifetime “Dream Flights” to veterans, many of whom served during WWII, in a Boeing Stearman biplane, the same aircraft used to train many military aviators in the late thirties and early forties.
The mission of the Aleethia Foundation is to support injured service members with therapeutic recreation, small financial grants, family emergency aid, assistive technology items, and home improvements to assist with an injured service member's mobility and other unmet needs. Sport Clips is proud to sponsor “Friday Night Dinners” which provide injured veterans and their families with the opportunity to enjoy a great meal while socializing – an integral part of the healing process.
Veterans Airlift Command
Veterans Airlift Command (VAC) provides free air transportation to post-9/11 combat wounded and their families for medical and other compassionate purposes through a national network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots. Sport Clips is proud to support VAC by transporting veterans to their destinations throughout the year.
