INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - May 28, 2014) -
Flagship Logistics Group recognizes the value of supporting organizations that help our nation's treasures -- our veterans. Last week in remembrance of Memorial Day, for every load they helped move for their customers $5.00 was donated to the Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation. Today with great pride Flagship Logistics Group announced that they are donating $1,115.00 to this amazing non-profit organization. Since their inception in 2004 the Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation has sent over 21,000 care packages to troops deployed overseas and awarded over $400,000 in post-secondary school education scholarships.
Flagship Logistics Group understands the need for veterans to obtain civilian jobs and that is why they are focused on hiring veterans to staff their Customer Care Center. They have purposely designed a facility that exceeds ADA standards to cater for the needs of our veterans. "At Flagship Logistics Group we are reminded every day that we have made a commitment to offer a work environment that provides our veterans with equal employment opportunities and ongoing support," CEO Bob Moran
The donation to Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation is an extension of their commitment to support veterans, Flagship Logistics Group will donate $1,115.00 to the Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation with the support of their customers.
Even though Memorial Day has passed, the family at Flagship Logistics Group would like to ask for everyone to still take time to thank our Military Men, Women and Families, past and present for their sacrifices, dedication and service to our country on a daily basis. A "Thank You" can be a simple handshake, a personal note of gratitude, or volunteering your time with a military support organization. Our messages of appreciation can make a positive impact to the men and women who protect our freedom globally.
