This past May as part of Military Appreciation Month, we’re recognizing our veterans and active-duty service members around the world with our new apparel that supports a great cause.
We're expanding our military apparel with some exciting new additions as part of our efforts to give back to the military community and actively support veterans. We will continue our partnership with CallForFire (CFF), a veteran-owned and operated business, to manufacture these items.
Available for purchase, our military apparel now includes military green t-shirts, camo-themed sweatshirts (zipped and hoodie), baseball caps, v-neck tees, long-sleeve tees, Verizon VALOR employee resource group (ERG) t-shirts, and an exclusive Wounded Warrior Project (WWP)/Verizon pin that will be included free with all purchases.
These veteran nonprofit organizations will receive a portion of proceeds on behalf of Verizon:
FourBlock is focused on changing the process of transitioning and hiring veterans. FourBlock aims to equip transitioning veterans to pursue careers that truly fit their calling. This organization has a mission to support veterans and help shape their futures.
Mission 22 supports veterans with rehabilitation services for those with PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury, and substance abuse, and is dedicated to healing America's veterans. This organization has a direct focus on rehabilitation and decreasing the veteran suicide rate of 22 per day.
Wounded Warrior Project is a charity and veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, services and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following September 11, 2001.
Burnpits 360 supports Veterans exposed to toxic burn pits during the Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom wars who suffered neurological disorders, pulmonary diseases, rare forms of cancer, and many unexplained symptoms. These soldiers were exposed to toxins and tons of hazardous waste burned by government contractors at forward operating bases using jet fuel in large ground pits.
Show your support this Veterans Day by purchasing these items from Call for Fire for yourself or loved ones who have served or are active-duty— you don’t have to have military service to support this great cause!
