NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 6, 2014) – For years Charlie Daniels has been an avid supporter of America’s military and now the Journey Home Project, has enlisted Daniels as the Chairman of the Board. In 2009, Daniels began hosting a yearly fundraising dinner at The Palm restaurant where money raised would be donated to various military charities. In 2012, Daniels and David Corlew, co-founder of Journey Home Project, started the Charlie Daniels Scholarship for Heroes Fund as part of the Yellow Ribbon Education Program to raise money to allow our military heroes to receive an excellent education. Now, in 2014, along with partners Joe and Mercedez Longever, the Journey Home Project has been established to cultivate and bring all fundraising efforts under one umbrella.

“The Journey Home Project was born out of a need and helps create awareness, reaching out to people who might not come into contact with soldiers on a daily basis, but who care, we know that America is full of people who want to help, but they're not sure how,” says Joe Longever, Journey Home Project board member. “Our veterans have sacrificed so much, they are proud that they have served their country and honored that someone would think of them.

The Journey Home Project exists to assist other not-for-profits in securing funds to help causes that benefit Veterans of the United States Armed Forces.
