When it comes to showing the love, no one does it better than Scorpion employee, Michelle Phares.
And when given the opportunity to support two charitable causes as Scorpion’s June Employee of the Month winner, Michelle knew exactly where her donations should go:
The Wounded Warrior Project and the Castaic Animal Shelter.
On her decision to support both organizations, Michelle said:
“My husband is a Marine veteran. I hear a lot of stories from him and his Marine friends about struggle, depression, PTSD, and suicides that don’t get the attention they need until it’s too late. And I think they deserve everything they need. At the same time I grew up with five dogs, and when I moved out I wasn’t able to take any with me because it would break up the bond. Four years later I feel this hole in my heart–like something was missing. So, my husband and I went to the Castaic Animal Shelter and found our baby girl, Maya! She’s sweet, playful, sassy and made our life a little brighter.”

The Wounded Warrior Project
The Wounded Warrior Project started when several friends were moved by the stories of services members wounded in the theater of war. What began as a way to provide comfort items and care packages to Purple Heart recipients, has grown into an end-to-end program that helps soldiers make the difficult transition back to civilian life.
As of June 2015, The Wounded Warrior Project has helped more than 80,000 people.
The Castaic Animal Shelter
A branch of the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control, the Castaic Animal Shelter takes in abandoned pets (primarily dogs and cats) collected by Animal Control officers operating across more than 3,400 square miles of Southern California.
