Bruegger’s will offer its New York-style, hot-from-the-oven red, white, and blue swirled bagels on July 3rd and 4th to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday and help the men and women of the Armed Forces and their families. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of patriotic bagels will benefit the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is a leader in supporting the men and women of the Armed Forces and their families. Founded in 2000 under the auspices of the Intrepid Museum Foundation, and established as an independent not-for-profit organization in 2003, the Fund has provided close to $60 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans. The Fund’s latest project is the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE), an advanced facility dedicated to research, diagnosis, and treatment of military personnel and veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI) and psychological health issues. All efforts are funded entirely with donations from the public, and hundreds of thousands of individuals have contributed to the Fund. One hundred percent of contributions raised by the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund go towards these programs; all administrative expenses are underwritten by the Fund’s Trustees.
