Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) employees care deeply about the communities where they live and work. That’s why this summer, employees chose to donate $5,000 to Never Forgotten Honor Flight.
The donation is part of WPS’ Safety Charity Challenge, a companywide program to encourage employees to live and work safely while positively impacting their local communities. Each quarter when their safety goals are met, employees have the opportunity to direct a contribution from the WPS Foundation toward one of several charities.
The most recent donation was made to Never Forgotten Honor Flight, a Wausau-based nonprofit organization. Never Forgotten Honor Flight allows armed forces veterans to fly to Washington, D.C., to see the memorials built in their honor. Participating veterans receive a one-day, all-expenses paid trip to visit the landmarks and memorials honoring their service, including the Vietnam War Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery.
Since 2010, Never Forgotten Honor Flight has flown more than 4,000 veterans from across northern Wisconsin to Washington, D.C.
Never Forgotten Honor Flight is one of hundreds of nonprofit organizations the WPS Foundation is proud to support every year.
