Why We Give
The veterans of our military services have put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. They have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized and supported for their commitment. All of us believe and understand in the fabric of the common bond of why we call ourselves American is to care for the men and women who wear the uniform; and when they take off the uniform, we care for them when they are veterans.
Courtney Woodworth- Bike for Heroes Volunteer Coordinator
I was introduced to JCS through my father and his efforts with the organization. We are both veterans and seeing the work my father was doing for JCS inspired me to get more involved and to give back to those who served as well. I befriended the wife of a JCS Hero thru work and saw firsthand the impact that JCS has on the Heroes and families they adopt. I have spent the last two years working as the volunteer coordinator for the Bike for Heroes event along with attending events. It is inspiring to see the JCS Heroes overcome adversity and achieve goals that otherwise seem impossible. It has been a great honor and privilege to support this organization. I will continue to support the mission of JCS and the promise of this country to Never Forget the sacrifices of the brave men and women who serve.
Nidec Motor Corporation
Nidec Motor Corporation included the Joshua Chamberlain Society in their annual charitable contributions for fiscal year 2019. This organization does so much to help our wonderful veterans in and around the St. Louis area. The Bike for Heroes event was a first for Nidec Motor Corporation and we look forward to participating again.
Many thanks to the Joshua Chamberlain Society for all the work they do for our veterans!
My name is Jeff Netherton, and I live in St. Paul, MO with my wife Barb. I am a graduate of Missouri State and postgraduate of Washington University, Olin School of Business. We have transferred around the US for Graybar four times in my 25+ year career, but have been back in St. Louis since 2010.
I was introduced to the JCS about 9-years ago at the Sporting Clay Shoot through work affiliations with NAI DESCO and ARCO Construction. Coming from a military family, but never serving myself, I was immediately drawn to the efforts and support this charity was providing. I was humbled meeting some of the hero’s knowing and seeing the sacrifice they gave to this country. I am fortunate to work for a great company, Graybar, who supported my request to help sponsor the JCS.
