LOUISVILLE, KY – January 25, 2018 - USA Cares, the national nonprofit organization that provides immediate assistance to military families in crisis, is excited to announce they have officially opened their doors in Louisville with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house.
USA Cares’ new office space is located at 11760 Commonwealth Drive in the Jeffersontown district of Louisville, Kentucky. The relocation was celebrated today with a mayoral proclamation from Jeffersontown Mayor Bill Dieruf and Scott Herrmann, Director of the Department of Economic Development as proxy for Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. Entertainment was provided by the internationally-acclaimed Thoroughbred Chorus, who opened the event with a stirring rendition of the National Anthem.
“It is with great honor that we welcome USA Cares to the Jeffersontown community,” said Mayor Bill Dieruf. “This community is based on family, and USA Cares is about helping families. We are honored and pleased with what they do for both those who have served and those who are in need.”
Among those in attendance were Jude Thompson, CEO of Delta Dental of Kentucky, John Weeks, Vice President and General Counsel of Delta Dental of Kentucky, Michael Greenwell, chairman of the Warrior Empowerment Foundation, Heather French Henry, former Miss America 2000 and Deputy Commissioner for the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs, Bryan Anderson, Iraq War veteran and Purple Heart recipient, Bradley Roy, USA Cares Ambassador and Bassmaster Elite Angler, members of the Jeffersontown Chamber of Commerce, and many members of the Louisville community.
Tours of the facility were conducted for those in attendance, and the ceremony was concluded by check presentations from Texas Roadhouse, the Warrior Empowerment Foundation and Delta Dental of Kentucky, who has donated more $500,000 to USA Cares since 2014.
“It’s an honor for Delta Dental to give back to the service men and women who have given so much to this country,” said Jude Thompson. “we have the good fortune to be able to do it and associate with USA Cares; it’s truly a blessing.”
"Warrior Empowerment Foundation has been associated with USA Cares for the last three years, and they have been the largest beneficiary of what we do during our annual Tribute to Troops event,” said Michael Greenwell. “We have 100% confidence that the funds we deliver to them go to the right places. We are very selective of where our money goes, and USA Cares has the infrastructure and connections to get our funds to those who need it. We look forward to many more years of partnership with USA Cares.”
The staff at USA Cares welcomed the opportunity to connect with their new community and provided guests with a glimpse of the life changing work they do to assist military families across the nation.
“It is an honor and privilege to be welcomed to the Louisville community,” said Hank Patton. “We look forward to working together with our new neighbors to better assist military families in crisis across the nation.”
