1. During 2018, through your generous gifts, the ITPA Charitable Foundation continued the long established tradition of supporting charitable causes across the country.  The National President’s Charity of Choice in 2018 was the American Diabetes Association.  Thanks to the generosity of fellow Pioneers at the National Assembly, $2500 in donations were raised for the Diabetes Association work to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.  As in past years, the Foundation proudly supports the National Project Alzheimer’s Association and contributed $2,500 for funding research for those affected by the disease.  In addition, the Foundation granted a request from a Pioneer club in Florida in the amount of $1,000 for the Red Cross in Tallahassee’s relief efforts after Hurricane Michael.   Our support of the National Project Troop and Veteran Support allowed us to contribute $2,500 to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation to assist in providing college scholarships and educational counseling to the surviving children of Special Operations personnel killed in the line of duty.  The National Charitable Foundation also supports projects in the Hinesville, Georgia, area where our national office is located when funds are available.  This year, the Foundation made a $150 donation (10 wreaths) to Wreaths for Warriors Walk in Hinesville.   The project provides Christmas wreaths to be placed at the tree of each and every fallen soldier along the Fort Stewart Warriors Walk.  In addition, thanks to a Hinesville area dental office and a partnership with Worchester Wreath Company (Wreaths across America), a $50 donation on behalf of ITPA Charitable Foundation will be made to the St. Joseph’s Candler Hospital Howard Hand in Hand Program in Savannah, Georgia, to maximize our $150 donation even more.  The Howard Hand in Hand Support Program provides support, education and guidance to children and teens with a family member facing a life threatening disease.  Your donation to the ITPA Charitable Foundation will allow us to continue supporting these and other worthy causes in 2019.
