TriWest Healtcare Alliance, the provider of military personnel health services, announced that it raised $75,000 to support military nonprofits with its "Go Green & Give" campaign. For every person who opted into TriWest's paperless notification system, the company promised to donate $5 to four military charities, one of which was the Coast Guard Foundation.
From TriWest's news release:
In all, nearly 15,000 TRICARE households in the western U.S. participated in the three-month "Go Green & Give" campaign.
"By choosing to get information electronically, our TRICARE beneficiaries not only simplified access to their personal health care information, they also provided an additional boost to four organizations that work incredibly hard to support America's military families," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr.
The Coast Guard Foundation is very proud to be a part of this great campaign, and we thank TriWest and all the people who went green and gave.
The three other charities who will benefit from the campaign are:
- Armed Services YMCA—Funds will assist Junior Enlisted Air Force families across the West Region by providing access to youth development and education, family strengthening, and health and well-being programs
- Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society—Provides financial, educational and other assistance to active duty, retired and reserve members of the Navy and Marine Corps, as well as their family members and survivors when in need
- Army Homefront Fund—Helps wounded soldiers return to duty or transition successfully back to civilian life by providing emergency assistance with rent/mortgage, utilities, home repair, food, child care and critical baby items, vehicle repair, moving assistance and health care
