Perspecta has gifted Home of the Brave campaign to Soldiers' Angels, a national nonprofit organization, to expand the scope of the campaign nationwide, Perspecta reported on Thursday. Home of the Brave has partnered with the Department of Veteran Affairs Voluntary Service (VAVS) (VAVS) and corporate partner employees to support veterans at VA medical facilities.
"At Perspecta, we are dedicated to honoring and supporting the men and women who have fought so bravely for our freedom and are proud to continue supporting our nation's heroes by serving as Soldiers' Angels Home of the Brave's title sponsor," said Mac Curtis, chairman and chief executive officer of Perspecta, and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient.
The campaign works with multiple sponsors that have provided items such as t-shirts, thank you cards, hygiene kits, blankets and other necessities to veterans at VA medical facilities nationwide. With Perspecta’s support, the campaign is now officially branded as Soldiers' Angels Home of the Brave.
Last year, within one week, Soldiers' Angels Home of the Brave provided aid across 41 states, plus Puerto Rico and raised $93.5 thousand in donations to support VA patients. The nonprofit will continue to develop new partnerships with companies who support the military by hiring veterans and honoring veterans for their service.
"During the last three years of our decade-long management of the Home of the Brave campaign, we worked closely with Soldiers' Angels to implement this program nationwide and participated in meaningful interactions that demonstrate our great respect and admiration for American veterans," said Curtis. "With their robust network and established infrastructure for outreach, we are confident Soldiers' Angels is the right organization to ensure the longevity of this uplifting and impactful program."
