NASVHILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) — The Journey Home Project, co-founded by country legend Charlie Daniels, has pledged $50,000 to help equip a new center for veterans and military families at Middle Tennessee State University.
The contribution comes from funds raised at the 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam, which took place on Aug. 12 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
Daniels and his long-time manager, David Corlew, co-founded The Journey Home Project as a non-profit organization to assist other not-for-profits to secure funds to benefit veterans.
“Charlie and all of the board of The Journey Home Project are excited about our new partnership with MTSU and the veterans at this incredible university,” Corlew said. “This center will be the resource that will enable young men and women returning home from their service to transition, along with their families, into their lives as civilians.”
“The 2,600-square-foot center, located on the first floor of Keathley University Center, will be the largest and most comprehensive post-secondary center for veterans in Tennessee,” said retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Keith Huber, MTSU’s senior adviser for veterans and leadership initiatives. “It will address a number of student needs, including financial aid, navigating veterans benefits and academic advising,” he added. – Staff Writers
