"Tis the Season to Give
Happy Holidays, everyone! This is my absolute favorite time of the year - the time to gather with family and friends, enjoy each other’s company, eat delicious foods, attend holiday festivities, and most importantly, give to others.
In the spirit of giving, I do have a special ask of you.
The reality facing many of our veteran clients (over 75% of them) is that they do not have the financial means for transportation to and from our Career Center to participate in our career development and training programs that will give them a leg up in the success ladder. And sadly, they often don’t have the financial means for transportation to and from very important job interviews.

The wonderful team at FedEx Cares recently held a clothing drive to serve those in need, and we were one of the lucky recipients.
