Memorial Day has become synonymous with barbecues and beach trips, but it’s meant to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. At Sealed Air, we honor our nation's veterans and are thankful for those who return home safely to begin civilian careers.
To support our veterans, we are continuing to partner with Hope For The Warriors®, a national nonprofit that supports service members and their families. Additionally, we were proud to present the organization’s inaugural Charlotte Run For The Warriors® this year. Since many veterans credit their success in the workplace to skills learned in the military, we joined forces with Charlotte, NC-based nonprofit Patriots Path, which offers career transition strategies for veterans, spouses, and active duty National Guard and Reserve members. As a partner company, Sealed Air sponsored classes and donated classroom space. Sealed Air employees in talent recruitment have also acted as job coaches to those involved in Patriots Path. Internally, we are continuing to build our global Veterans Network and are pleased to share that over 200 members are now able to easily connect to offer guidance and support in the workplace.
This Memorial Day, I encourage you to join us by reaffirming your commitment to support our veterans and service members. And to my fellow veterans and their families, I salute you.
