Thomas Bonadio, CEO and managing partner of The Bonadio Group, presented a $25,000 check Wednesday to CDS Monarch in Webster.
The donation will benefit Warrior Salute, a CDS Monarch program that helps veterans with post-traumatic stress disorders, traumatic brain injuries, military sexual trauma and transition back into the civilian community.
“I was recently introduced to the Warrior Salute service of CDS Monarch and immediately knew that this was an organization I wanted to support,” Bonadio said. “Warrior Salute is a way for our community to care for the veterans who have selflessly protected our country.”
Warrior Salute staff work with veterans and their families to provide comprehensive clinical services built around the unique needs of each service member and their family, including individual and group mental health counseling, complimentary alternative therapies such as art and music, independent living skills training, vocational rehabilitation, case management and temporary housing.
The program is administered locally, but is open to all U.S. veterans through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or hospitals.
