Non-Profit Co-founded by Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels
Funds Multiple Projects and Gives Back to Those Who Served


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (December 19, 2016)The Journey Home Project,
co-founded by Charlie Daniels, presented a check for $100,000 to
Operation Stand Down Tennessee on behalf of Nashville Serving Veterans
Community Board. The gift will be used to staff the Nashville Serving
Veterans Community Board’s Virtual Welcome Center in
partnership with Operation Stand Down Tennessee. DevDigital, a local
full service digital development firm that specializes in custom web
development, enterprise and mobile application development, and web
hosting will provide the design and hosting of the site at no cost.

“The true measure of growth in supporting our military community, is
when like-minded Americans realize a need, and then take action.
Charlie, along with DevDigital, Lt. General Keith Huber, Operation Stand
Down and the board of The Journey Home Project are joining forces to
create a Nashville resource center that will serve our military families
in the way they so deserve. We are experiencing the incredible success
of a center such as this at the Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and
Military Family Center on the MTSU campus. I feel honored to be a part
of this amazing process,” said David Corlew, co-founder of The Journey
Home Project and Daniels’ manager.

Nashville-based 501(c)3 non-profit, The Journey Home Project, made
2016 a record year of giving with hundreds of thousands of dollars
pledged to various initiatives. The organization, co-founded by newly
inducted Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie Daniels and manager
and music industry veteran David Corlew with Ed Hardy, Joe Longever and
Mercedez Longever, was founded to make a difference in the lives of
American veterans by helping to meet their education, healthcare and
employment needs.

Highlights of the year included donating $50,000 to Shepherd’s Men as
part of their 1,400-mile run from Boston to Atlanta to benefit the
SHARE Military Initiative at Atlanta’s Shepherd Center. After donating
over $100,000 to Middle Tennessee State University to create their
Veterans and Military Family Center which opened in April, the center
was named in honor of Daniels’ and his wife Hazel earlier this year. The
2,600-square-foot, $329,000 center is a one-stop-shop for MTSU’s
approximately 1,000 student veterans and family members. At an event in
October prior to a Tennessee Titan’s game called Tailgate for a Cause,
The Journey Home Project presented a check to the organization A
Soldier’s Child. ASC provides children of fallen military personnel who
have given their lives in service to our country a birthday gift each
year until they are 18. They offer multiple mentorship programs as well
as scholarships to their members. Presently, over 2,500 children are
enrolled in the program.

These funds are made possible through the charitable giving of
individual donors throughout the year as well as major fundraising
events including an annual gala at The Palm Restaurant in Downtown
Nashville. Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam in November
raised a considerable amount of money for the non-profit, featuring acts
like Kid Rock, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton and more.
