Workshops for Warriors, a nonprofit organization assisting veterans who are transitioning into civilian life through training, certification and job placement, received a $37,000 donation from tooling manufacturer, Core Powered Inc.

In addition, the company contributed a vending machine for students that they will keep stocked and launched 70 Veterans at the Table, a fundraising challenge to provide students with a meal daily.

“Core Powered is passionate, caring and committed to supporting veterans in our program. Aside from their monetary donation, they’re helping us in unique ways with the vending machine and keeping it stocked,” says Hernàn Luis y Prado, founder of Workshop for Warriors. “It costs $10,000 to train a student every semester. We’re extremely grateful for their donation and all they continue to do to support our students and our mission.”

Core Powered’s Vice President Deborah Doyle launched the GoFundMe campaign “70 Veterans at the Table” with the goal of raising $55,000 by December 2015. The funds will go directly toward feeding veterans enrolled in Workshops for Warriors’ training program.

“Despite tough circumstances, these veterans have the courage and discipline to enroll in the program. We want them to know that they’re not forgotten and are supported as they work to achieve their goals,” says Ms. Doyle. “From our table to theirs, let's share a meal together.”
