Wounded Nature Hires New Florida Director

CHARLESTON, South Carolina (May, 2017) -- Wounded Nature - Working Veterans has hired Army Veteran, Justin Willis, to serve as full-time Florida Director. In this position, Justin will organize volunteers to clean trash and debris from the many miles of Florida's rural coastal areas that have never been cleaned as most of America’s critical coastal wildlife habitats are collection points for trash and storm debris. Most wildlife tends to nest and inhabit the coastal areas that are hard to access and many can only be reached by boat.

FL JustinHiring Army Veteran Willis as the new Florida Director was made possible by a fundraising campaign in partnership with national retailer Party City, which took place last December. In conjunction with the partnership, Party City also launched an educational campaign aimed at encouraging customers to properly tie down and dispose of balloons in an effort to prevent them from ending up in waterways.

"Wounded Nature - Working Veterans is extremely pleased to work with Party City as an environmental partner and supporter, said Rudy Socha, CEO, Wounded Nature - Working Veterans “Party City has already proven to be an environmental leader within their market.
