The Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl has joined forces with the employees of Bell Helicopter in donating a $20,000 check to the Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund.
The Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund (www.cfsrf.org) is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization that was founded in October 2003 as a means of providing College Grants and Financial Assistance to surviving children and spouses of U.S. military service members who have lost their lives in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
“This contribution to the Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund is but a token of the gratitude we have as Americans to our heroes – and their family members – who have paid the supreme sacrifice to keep our nation free, and allow its citizens to continue pursuing our founding fathers’ ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” said Tom Starr, Executive Director of the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl.
The donation, which will be routed to help families in North Texas, will be presented here at the Air Force versus TCU football game beginning at 2:30pm in Amon G. Carter stadium on Saturday, November 22. Receiving the check on behalf of the ”Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund” will be the founder, Becky Campbell.
“We owe our continual freedom to all our service members, both past and present, and in our efforts to give a gift in return to our fallen heroes’ families we are so very thankful for the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl contribution,” said Campbell. “This generous contribution will allow us to continue with our mission of providing comfort and care for the other American heroes, their children and spouses.”
