FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – September 3, 2021
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) is honored to once again partner with Parsons Corporation (NYSE: PSN) on the 14th Annual TAPS Golf Outing at Mountain Branch Golf Course, in Joppa, Md., on September 9 at 9:00 a.m. The event began in 2007 and has raised more than $942,120 to support the families of U.S. fallen military servicemen and women.
“Through 14 years of partnership, our mission of supporting grieving military families has turned into a national movement focused on compassion, connection, and reflection on the sacrifices – both at home and abroad – of our fallen heroes whose impact and loss is felt throughout our society,” said Bonnie Carroll, TAPS President and Founder and 2015 Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient. “The amplification of our commitment to those grieving families is strengthened through value-focused organizations like Parsons, who work to support our nation’s veteran community daily.
TAPS is the national organization providing compassionate care for the families of America’s fallen military heroes. Services are provided free of charge. The organization offers support to more than 100,000 surviving family members of our fallen military and their caregivers since 1994.
“None of our nation’s heroes or their families should ever feel alone. We are focused on helping TAPS ensure those individuals and families struggling with the loss of a military loved one have the support network and resources in their time of need,” said Chuck McGregor, vice president of Parsons Military and Veteran Affairs. “At Parsons we’re creating an environment that recognizes and honors the importance of our veterans, and supports the communities and people that support us.”
