JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Action News Jax’s Meghan Moriarty takes a look at how Jacksonville-area nonprofits like Wounded Warrior Project are coping with the coronavirus pandemic. Watch the video above.
- Wounded Warrior Project, like many other nonprofits, has been struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic.
- Many of their veteran members struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder and they encourage them to get out of the house and come to in-person events. But, due to the coronavirus, WWP had to shift everything to online, which presented challenges to get creative.
- Since the pandemic, the need for WWP’s mental health and financial resources have gone up by 20-30%. They’re doing a lot of virtual programming, including, health and fitness classes, cooking classes, and even activities to do with family.
