As a veteran, I know transitioning from active military service to the civilian workforce can be a challenging time. Unique skill sets, abilities, and interests all factor into determining their new, civilian career.
On Veterans Day, Sealed Air recognizes the importance of supporting those on their path to civilian employment. To that effort, we’ve renewed our partnership with Charlotte-based veterans’ organization, Patriots Path and are continuing our support of the national nonprofit Hope For The Warriors® in their Career Transition & Education programs. Additionally, we’ll continue to sponsor their annual Charlotte-based fundraiser Run For The Warriors®. Internally, we’re expanding opportunities through our global Veterans Network for employees who have either served in the military or are interested in supporting veterans.
This year, the Sealed Air Global Corporate Communications and Sustainability team and Diversey Care North America Marketing team packed over 600 American Red Cross Totes for Hope comfort kits. These kits include hygiene essentials and are distributed to veterans and service members abroad and in the local Charlotte community. Finally, Sealed Air is proud to maintain an annual partnership with the American Red Cross to provide confidential services to all troops and their families by connecting them with critical resources for assistance before, during, and after deployment.
It’s our honor to support these organizations and our veterans during times of transition, and I encourage you to join us by committing to support our veterans and service members. We salute our veterans.
