Although it pales in comparison to the contribution of our veterans, we are proud to do our part through the PeopleShare Veteran’s Program.
4.4% of veteran’s are currently unemployed. In addition to actively recruiting veterans to fill our clients’ open positions, for each veteran we place, we donate $100 to a charity that helps support troops and their families.
One of those organizations is The 98 Fund. Founded by members of the United States Military Academy Class of 1998, The 98 Fund works to support the children of fallen classmates through scholarship funds and Veteran-led retreats. The 98 Fund also provides help to classmates who returned from combat different than the way they left and creates opportunities for children to preserve the memories of parents they’ve lost.
Chris Williams, PeopleShare Senior Vice President, attended West Point with the founders of The 98 Fund and introduced us to this incredible organization.
In honor of Memorial Day, we are donating $5,800 to The 98 Fund in honor of the 58 veterans we have placed in employment thus far in 2022. We are honored to be able to support this awesome organization through our Veteran’s Program and look forward to the rest of the year.
Thank you to our veterans for your sacrifice, courage and example you set for us all. And may we all continue to remember and honor those who have given their lives for our freedom.
