EVANSVILLE, IND. (July 16, 2019) – Leading mover Atlas® Van Lines, Inc., has committed to supporting the nation’s wounded warriors through Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) and the nonprofit’s free programs and services.

With the company’s recent financial contribution, Atlas Van Lines is directly supporting the programs and services that give warriors access to mental and physical health support, employment and education assistance, and the many other services that WWP provides to its warriors, free of charge.
“The support we receive from Atlas Van Lines gives Wounded Warrior Project the critical resources we need to serve warriors,” said Gary Corless, chief development officer at WWP. “We’re extremely grateful for their support which will help us to continue to serve this generation of wounded veterans as they recover from the visible and invisible wounds of war.”
