The Infinite Hero Foundation, a charitable arm and special edition collection of Lake Forest-based action sports brand Oakley, has chosen five veteran-services organizations to receive funds for the foundation’s programs that meet the needs of military heroes and their families.

The five organizations that were selected to receive Infinite Hero grants are the Armed Forces Foundation, Heartbeat – Serving Wounded Warriors, Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America, The Institute for Creative Technologies, and the Semper Fi Fund.

“The selection process was challenging but thanks to the dedication of those who serve Infinite Hero, our funds will be utilized with efficacy and efficiency,” said Colin Baden, president of Infinite Hero Foundation. “The board made its choices with a careful eye toward programs that will maximize the use of grant money in ways both quantifiable and immeasurable, including positive quality-of-life changes for heroes and their families.”

The organizations will use the grants to provide a variety of resources, including counseling services, financial assistance, and therapeutic services, as well as fund programs that address mental health issues.

“This is a very exciting time for the foundation, as well as an opportunity for the many generous supporters of Infinite Hero to see the real-world results of their donations,” Baden said. “They are the ones who deserve credit and thanks for making these programs possible. They are the ones who are making a difference in the lives of those who have sacrificed so much for the good of us all.”
