Toronto, Nov. 7, 2017 /insPRESS/ – AssessMed, Canada’s leading independent medical examination service company, presented Wounded Warriors Canada with a $10,000 donation in support of their leading mental health programs benefiting ill and injured Veterans, First Responders and their families. Like many large firms in Canada, each year during the holiday season, AssessMed allocates marketing funds for the purchase of holiday gift baskets to send to selected valued clients, as a token of appreciation. This year, AssessMed decided to forgo the delivery of holiday baskets and, instead, they made a donation in support of Wounded Warriors Canada on behalf of their firm and all of their valued clients.

Donald Kunkel, President of AssessMed, commented, “Given the past year we have experienced, in which soldiers and first responders have been forced into action on what feels like a daily basis, we felt that our holiday marketing funds could not be better spent than through a charitable donation. When we learned of the amazing work of Scott Maxwell and his team at WWC, simply put, this initiative just felt right!”

Scott Maxwell, Executive Director of Wounded Warriors Canada, commented, “Our sincere thanks to AssessMed and their clients for supporting us in such an innovative way. This donation is evidence of the various ways in which the business community can help support our ill and injured Veterans, First Responders and their families. We are grateful for their support.”
