Mt. Carmel is dedicated to providing support to the military and veteran community. “In a non-profit, having fiscal support to run the programs is important. We need to keep the lights on. What we do isn’t for free. There are people that deliver the services, ” said Mt. Carmel Executive Director Bob McLaughlin. “Every dollar that comes into Mt. Carmel, two go back out into the community. All of the time, talent, treasure, volunteer, resource, and fiscal support is all critical to making this happen.”
Last year, the Switchbacks hosted a Cancer Awareness night in partnership with Centura’s Penrose Cancer Center. The play-worn jerseys raised over $9,000 for breast cancer research.
