San Diego’s 7-Eleven Franchise Owner’s Association Donates $10,007.11 To Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station

June 7, 2013 (San Diego, CA) – In an effort to assist, honor and support the military men and women who have bravely served and sacrificed for the nation, the 7-Eleven Franchise Owner’s Association (FOA) of San Diego made a donation yesterday of $10,007.11 to the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station. The donation comes from the proceeds from the annual Charity Golf Tournament, held yesterday at the Salt Creek Golf Club in Chula Vista, which was organized and sponsored by the San Diego FOA. More than 140 golfers – representing 7-Eleven vendors and FOA representatives from San Diego, Los Angeles, Tucson and Las Vegas – participated in the tournament.

The Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station began its operations in 2004 to address the needs of injured servicemen and women returning from overseas. While the San Diego FOA has been making donations on a regular basis to a number of charities in the San Diego area, the decision was reached this year to make a single donation, to one charity, to create as significant of an impact as possible.

“The 7-Eleven family of Franchise Owner’s Associations has a long history of giving back to the communities in which we live and work,” stated Bic Sidhu, San Diego FOA President. “So many servicemen and women and their families have been touched by combat serving this nation, and by giving back to the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station, we can be a part of their healing and recovery,” Sidhu concluded.

“It is heartening to accept this donation from the San Diego FOA,” stated Judy Sexton, Director of Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station. “These funds will go to help our injured warriors who have given their all for our freedoms. As an all-volunteer organization serving those injured warriors in southern California, this donation will stay here and will allow us to continue to help our military men and women to lead productive lives,” she concluded.
