Quality of Life Foundation and Azalea Charities Provide Gift Cards to Children of Injured Veterans

November 28, 2016 (Woodbridge, VA) – The Quality of Life Foundation (QoLF) has teamed up with Azalea Charities for the fifth consecutive year to give 53 minor children living with families who care for a severely wounded, ill or injured veteran a $100 Visa gift card.  This Holiday Blessing Program helps to alleviate some of the stress of caregivers and veterans associated with the season and lets them know their sacrifice for our country is much appreciated.

Thomas Rachele, Azalea Charities’ Chief Financial Officer, said “Azalea Charities is proud to present $5,000 that will go in support of children of caregiving families this holiday season.  We have partnered with Quality of Life Foundation in supporting their Unmet Needs Program since 2010 and look forward to continuing that support as we address the many needs of our loving caregivers.”

“The QoLF is only able to support our caregiver and veteran families due in part to the wonderful partnerships that we have with organizations like Azalea Charities. We are appreciative of organizations like Azalea Charities that trust the QoLF to maximize their dollars as collectively we support and impact even more wounded veteran family households.” says Elizabeth Chisolm.
