The Aleethia Foundation supports wounded/injured/ill service members in their rehabilitation and healing process
Dear Friends and Supporters of The Aleethia Foundation:

Thank you for visiting the Aleethia Foundation'swebsite. Aleethia is proud to play a role in supporting wounded/injured/ill service members and their families through the early phases of the healing process. We are a small, all volunteer non-profit dedicated to helping the wounded/injured/ill service members recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Aleethia provides support which started with the “Friday Night Dinners.” The Friday dinners were originally started in October 2003 when the injured began arriving at the military medical centers. These dinners continue to be an integral part of the healing process. Aleethia brings the wounded/injured/ill service members to a safe and accepting environment and shows them that life is still good, that they do not need to stay in their hospital rooms agonizing over what they have lost or how their lives have changed. The “Friday Night Dinners” are about recovery, fellowship and community, as much as they are about food. Most of the dinners are paid for by contributions from individuals. Some corporations and organizations will sponsor the entire or partial costs of a “Friday Night Dinner.” A dinner can incur costs from $ 4,000 to $ 10,000 per week based upon number of attendees and venue.
