PARK CITY — As part of its Thank Our Heroes campaign, AT&T is donating $50,000 to the National Ability Center’s Rest & Recovery program for veterans.

The funds will also assist in sustaining and expanding other key therapeutic veteran programs, which range from individual adaptive recreational activities to seven-day family respite retreats.

Founded in 1985, the National Ability Center empowers individuals of all abilities — including service members and their families — by building self-esteem, confidence and lifetime skills through sport, recreation and educational programs.

“We are beyond grateful for everything that our dedicated military community does to protect our country and we feel so fortunate to be able to continue offering such impactful programs and services to more than 1,200 service members, veterans and their families annually,” Gail Barille, CEO of the National Ability Center, said in a statement.

“It’s through partnerships and contributions like these with AT&T that our organization is able to honor those that have given up so much for us, not just on Veterans Day but every single day. The (center) is committed to being here not just for a day or a week but for the lifetime of our veterans.”
