OGDEN -- The Harrison Regent independent senior living community, 4481 Harrison Blvd. has donated $2,102.35 to the Outward Bound for Veterans program as part of parent company Holiday Retirement's national fundraising effort.

Holiday Retirement and its 278 U.S. independent senior living communities donated a total of $1.2 million through a three-month fund raising campaign.

Outward Bound for Veterans is a nonprofit program that helps returning service members and recent veterans readjust to life at home by providing challenging wilderness trips, which encourage healing and help rebuild confidence.

Holiday Retirement's donation will fund full trips - including flight, food, lodging, supplies and instructors - for 600 veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
