The Freedom Life Chest, collaboratively designed with the U.S. Special Forces, is complete with a charcoal finish, is customizable with six 4x6 exterior frames, one 5x7 interior frame, and pewter emblems representing each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.
"Presenting these soulful chests to our veterans who have tremendously served our country, is our way of saying 'thank you'," said Donna Yost, CEO and founder of The Life Chest. "The Life Chest is incredibly honored to be part of such a special day!"
The presentation of the Freedom Life Chests is taking place today, November 10, at the Vietnam Veterans of America, Detroit Chapter 9, located at 2951 Woodward Avenue in Detroit. The program kicked off with the Bigalora Wood Fired Food Truck providing complimentary 9" personal pizzas to veterans and their families for lunch, followed by the presentation of the Freedom Life Chests at 1:00 pm.
"One of the most important things we do is work to help better the lives of Veterans back home," said Paul Palazzolo, President VVA, Detroit Chapter 9. "Products such as The Life Chest are powerful in this process of integration into the mainstream of civilian life upon return."
"Growing up in Detroit, raised by my father - a WWII combat Veteran - and having served in the Vietnam War myself, I have an even stronger belief in American patriotism," said R. Michael "Mike" Sand, Public Information Officer of VVA, Detroit Chapter 9. "Recently, I have begun to see an increase in Veteran recognition, and this generous gift to our Detroit-area Veterans is overwhelmingly appreciated."
The Veteran's Day Freedom Life Chest donation is supported by these generous donors: Bigalora Wood Fired Cucina, Bistro 82, Dr.Steven Morris, The Life Chest, and TVI Logistics - aWoman/Minority/Veteran-owned Foreign-Trade Zone awarded as the nation's #9 Veteran-owned company, that is donating their services to deliver the Freedom Life Chests to the Vietnam Veterans of America, Detroit Chapter 9.
