Flagship Area Business Charity Impacts Local Vets [AUDIO]

BWF Charities Website

BECKER – An organization started by the founder of Becker Furniture World is affecting the lives of area war veterans.

Doug Huseby created BWF Charities in 1997. Since then, one program, called “Complementary Medicine” provides grants for qualified veterans for things like chiropractic work and massage therapy, offered at a clinic in St. Cloud’s Midtown Plaza.

Huseby says the goal of the therapy is to reduce the amount of pain some war vets live with every day.

Ron Penny of St. Cloud is one of the 60 vets who has enrolled in the Veteran Pain pilot program. He served in the Air Force, and says the 10 months he’s spent in therapy have made a difference in his life.

Veterans enrolled in the Veteran Pain Program are funded on a 6th month grant, which can be renewed every three months as needed.

BFW Charities also provides home furnishings for families in need all over the state. They’re hosting a fundraising for their programs on Thursday, August 9th in Annandale.
