SOWW is located at the Warrior Retreat at Bull Run in Haymarket, Virginia. The retreat offers a six-day respite stay during which warriors and their families can temporarily escape hospital settings and day-to-day demands to relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect with each other. The retreat features two ADA accessible homes on 37-acres in the shadow of the historic Bull Run Mountains. Since its launch, SOWW has hosted over 1000 warriors, their families and support networks at no expense to them. Saturday, August 3rd, SOWW is hosting its 2nd Motorcycle Poker Run, a community event beginning at the Haymarket Walmart and ending at the Warrior Retreat at Bull Run. Participants ride along a pre-determined route and stop at designated checkpoints to draw playing cards for their poker hand. The kicks stands are up at 10am to support wounded warriors in our community and region. Certainly, you will be amused by the different motorcycle styles and bikers personalities, food, beverages, live music, prizes, and lots of good conversation and laughs. August 3rd is also an excellent time to take advantage of the community Open House tours of the Lang House and the PenFed House where the warriors and their families stay during their visit. All proceeds from the Motorcycle Poker Run will go directly to Serve Our Willing Warriors, which provides cost-free retreat stays and non-medical services that positively affect the recovery of wounded, ill, or injured service members. Many wounded warriors and their families will be participating in this event. Register at Willing Warriors Poker Run

  • BACK TO SCHOOL

Back to School Did you know that many of our neighbors, friends, relatives, or co-workers live below the poverty line here in the state of Maryland? Poverty does not discriminate against gender, race or age. It is everywhere, especially among our kids! In the state of Maryland alone, there are over 692,000 kids living below the poverty line, can you believe that? Kids are supposed to be focusing on school, and enjoying their time playing and growing. But instead, many have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, or about clothing and shelter needs. For that reason, we have decided to alleviate some of these kids' worries by offering a day full of fun activities, food, hair cuts for kids, medical/dental check ups, safe entertainment, backpacks with school supplies, and much more, all for free! Going back to school can be very stressful for many kids living below the poverty line due to limited resources, and we hope this event can help them be ready from day one...after all, they deserve it! But we cannot do this alone; we need your help and every little bit counts! Many of us have been blessed in many ways and now this can be your opportunity to give back. Your contribution can help provide supplies that these underprivileged children really need to start the new school season with success! In advance. we want to thank you for your generosity, and please know that this gesture does not go unnoticed by our Heavenly Father! The scriptures say, "Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done." Proverbs 19:17 NIV. God bless you all!
