MEMPHIS, TN, Oct. 23 /CNW/ - Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc.
(Sedgwick CMS) announced a gift today of $150,000 to the Walter Reed Society,
the private auxiliary support organization for Walter Reed Army Medical Center
(WRAMC). The gift will be used by the Walter Reed Society's Operation Iraqi
Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom (OIF/OEF) Support Fund for assistance
grants to soldiers and the families of soldiers receiving treatment at WRAMC
for wounds received in Iraq, Afghanistan and related operations. Sedgwick CMS
colleagues (employees) raised approximately half of the amount, and the
Company matched their contribution.
Sedgwick CMS President and CEO David A. North and a delegation including
four Sedgwick CMS colleagues with recent service in OIF/OEF presented the
contribution to the Walter Reed Society today at a ceremony at WRAMC in
Washington, D.C. Major General (Ret) Enrique Mendez, formerly Commander of
WRAMC and Under Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs and a past President
of the Walter Reed Society, accepted the gift on behalf of the organization.
"The Walter Reed Society performs outstanding and compassionate service
through its efforts to ease family burdens and speed healing for men and women
of our military who have made great sacrifices in the line of duty," said
North. "The Society helps facilitate healthy and productive recoveries for
wounded soldiers in all the areas of their lives. I believe the people of
Sedgwick CMS relate so strongly to this mission because as a provider of
disability and workers' compensation services for ill and injured civilian
employees we are concerned with similar objectives. It is truly our privilege
to support our friends, family members and fellow citizens in the armed
services through today's gift."
