Hollywood, CA – Television personality Bob Barker will donate $2 million to the Semper Fi Fund ( http://www.semperfifund.org ) (SFF) to provide assistance to injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Barker, who was a fighter pilot during World War II, is hoping that his donation and support for our young Veterans will inspire others to give and commit to making sure that not one young Marine, sailor, airman and soldier or their family members are in need during their long-term recoveries.
The Semper Fi Fund provides financial assistance and quality of life solutions for post 9-11 Marines and sailors, as well as soldiers, airmen and Coast Guardsmen who are injured while serving in support of Marine forces. The Fund provides relief to service members and their families for immediate financial needs that arise during hospitalization and recovery, as well as perpetuating needs such as home modifications, customized transportation and specialized equipment.
SFF has awarded close to 26,000 financial grants totaling more than $46,000,000.00!
The Semper Fi Fund was founded by Karen Guenther, a registered nurse and spouse of an active duty Marine who had first-hand knowledge of the challenges faced by wounded Marines and Sailors returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. She, along with a dedicated group of military spouses established IMSFF in May of 2004.
