Burn care at Parkland Health & Hospital System got a big boost with the recent announcement of the Sons of the Flag Endowment for Burn Care Supplies through the Parkland Foundation.
Sons of the Flag is a nonprofit founded by former Navy SEAL Ryan Parrott to support military, first-responder, and civilian burn survivors by funding innovative research, treatment, and education, according to a news release.
The endowment will help provide wound kits and supplies for uninsured burn patients, the release said.
Parkland Foundation, through the generosity of an anonymous donor, is matching the cash donation from the Sons of the Flag for a initial value of $25,000 for the endowment.
“This is an exciting opportunity for Sons of the Flag to live out its mission and expand access to critical supplies and treatment for many in our community who cannot afford them,” Parrott said in the release.
In addition to its cash donation, Sons of the Flag has provided in-kind donations of Go Bags, clothing, toys, snacks, and holiday decorations that have a value of more than $10,000.
