USS Raises $10,000 to Support Veterans
In October 2017, we launched an employee-driven fundraiser to coincide with Thanksgiving. Our associates were “challenged” to send a short video clip of a fun and family-friendly turkey impersonation. For every employee participating, USS would make a cash donation to the non-profit Hire Heroes USA. They provide free employment services to thousands of transitioning U.S. military members, veterans and military spouses every year. It recently earned Charity Navigator’s highest possible 4-star rating for a third consecutive year. As a military friendly employer we are proud to partner with them.
From 90 locations coast to coast, our 2,700+ professionals delivering quality portable restroom rentals, temporary fence rentals, luxury restroom trailer and shower trailer rentals and roll off dumpsters, participated with great excitement. We are proud to share that we have raised $10,000 in cash donations for Hire Heroes USA! Way to go, USS!
Not only do we employ veterans but our team found a fun way to say “thank you” to our veterans this Thanksgiving.
“This donation, based on the efforts of United Site Services’ employees, is both welcome and timely, since it comes as we salute the veterans of our U.S. Armed Forces,” said Christopher Plamp, Interim CEO of Hire Heroes USA, and a retired Air Force Colonel. “This donation will enable us to provide free career services to increasing numbers of clients. We recently passed 20,000 lifetime hires as an organization and each success drives us toward continued growth and new innovation to help even more veterans and military spouses.”
“Employee engagement is always a focus for USS, we like to challenge our employees to think of others, especially during this time of year,” commented Ron Carapezzi, Chief Executive Officer of United Site Services. “We are honored to give to an organization that helps our service men and women in such a powerful way. We are also humbled by the response of our people. Our employees really made this something fun and memorable”.
We wish you a safe & happy Thanksgiving!
