We are quickly approaching our Salute to Service Gala, taking place on Saturday, November 19, at the Hilton McLean in Tysons Corner. This annual event showcases the Red Cross’s commitment to helping the community in times of need, and is a celebration of extraordinary individuals and their contributions to humanitarian services and their service to our country. The Salute to Service Gala is presented with the help of our many generous sponsors, including Silver Sponsor JPMorgan:
At JPMorgan Chase & Co. we recognize the tremendous sacrifices military members, veterans and their families have made for our nation. They often face significant challenges as they transition back to civilian life or seek to balance their careers with continued service in the Guard or Reserve. This year marks the fifth anniversary of JPMorgan Chase’s Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, established to drive firm-wide Veteran-related initiatives. Since 2011, more than 10,000 military veterans have joined the ranks of JPMorgan Chase, and the Firm has developed programs aimed at retaining and supporting them throughout their careers. By focusing on employment, financial capability and small business opportunities, JPMorgan Chase aims to position military service members, veterans and their families for success in their post-service lives. These efforts include leading the Veteran Jobs Mission – previously the 100,000 Jobs Mission – a coalition founded in 2011 by JPMorgan Chase and 10 other companies with the goal of hiring 100,000 veterans. Now more than 230 members strong, the coalition has collectively hired over 347,000 Veterans, and is committed to hiring 1 million.
