Actor Gary Sinise shines importance on ‘doing some good for others’ in the season of giving
Gary Sinise Foundation hosts annual Disney World trip for Gold Star families for first time since pandemic
Actor and humanitarian Gary Sinise discusses his foundation’s recent efforts to help military families, and where his philanthropic inspiration comes from.
There’s paying it forward, and then there’s Gary Sinise paying it forward.
The Emmy-award-winning actor and humanitarian joined "Cavuto: Coast to Coast" Thursday to discuss his foundation’s outstanding efforts towards the military community, and how Sinise has used his platform "to do some good for others."
"It usually starts out very grassroots, but you have to take action. You have to show people that you're serious," Sinise told host Neil Cavuto. "You have to show people that you're willing to do things, and encourage them to get on board to support you."
In 2011, after spending the previous decade volunteering with other organizations, Sinise decided to take humanitarian efforts into his own hands and launched his nonprofit, the Gary Sinise Foundation. Through the Foundation, Sinise said he’s been "blessed" with opportunities to expand service efforts, providing the military, veteran and first responder communities with additional fundraising and outreach.
