Bunkers in Baghdad Named a 2014 Top-Rated Nonprofit

In 2008, Buffalonian Joseph M. Hanna, a partner at the law firm Goldberg Segalla, founded Bunkers in Baghdad. Since its inception, the charity has managed to procure more than 5 million golf balls and more than 250,000 golf clubs for soldiers stationed in over 30 countries. That’s a lot of equipment, and that results in a lot of smiling faces. Soldiers stationed in foreign countries certainly don’t have access to the simple amenities that they have at home. That’s why Hanna felt so compelled to start the initiative.


Now, Bunkers in Baghdad is being bestowed an honor for its initiative and its incredible successes over the years. GreatNonprofits is recognizing the new and used golf equipment supplier as one of the Top-Rated 2014 Nonprofit organizations in the country. The work has changed the face of recreational sports when it comes to military offerings and abilities. “It’s a terrific honor to receive such great feedback and be in the company of other wonderful organizations,” said Joseph M. Hanna, Bunkers in Baghdad founder and a partner at the law firm Goldberg Segalla. “But it’s our donors, volunteers, and soldiers who are really at the core of our success.”
