Texas Frightmare weekend is proud to announce this year’s charity! 100% of proceeds will be donated to Mission 22.
Stop by the Mission 22 booth located at the Irving Convention Center's first floor lobby for a silent auction, merchandise and more ways to show your support for this important charity.
Every day, 22 veterans lose their battle to post traumatic stress, and depression on American soil. That is 1 veterans every 65 minutes. The rates for the active-duty individual services per 100,000 according to the report, were 23 for the Army, 23.1 for the Marine Corps, 14.4 for the Air Force and 13.4 for the Navy.
The Veteran Administration statistics confirm 22 Veterans a day are succumbing to suicide on American soil. Mission 22 is a national community supporting active service members, Veterans, and their family members. They offer Support and treatment programs for active service members, Veterans, and their family members, addressing Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, suicide risk and other challenges. By uniting civilians and the military community to raise awareness of issues active service members, veterans, and their family members face, we can win the war against veteran suicide. We will have another silent auction and items for sale. Thank you for your support and all the love you showed Mission 22 last year!
Mission 22 supports the veteran community with three main programs; veteran wellness programs, memorials and community social impact. Mission 22 provides wellness programs to veterans and their families for Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they might be facing. It organizes events and builds memorials to create social impact and awareness for these issues. Mission 22 serves combat veterans, those injured in training who therefore could not deploy and victims of MST. Mission 22 also has an Ambassador volunteer program for people to get involved as well. Ambassadors educate the public on veteran issues, help get veterans into Mission 22 treatment programs and create resources in their communities. Through these three programs, it enables a push for the betterment of our community and support when veterans need it the most, right now.
