This November, one of the biggest non-profit organization campaigns for veterans in the US made huge strides as the Call of Duty Endowment Veterans Day Giving Campaign raised $1.75 million in funding. The funds were raised through a three-week in-store round-up campaign by Pilot Company and its guests, and will go towards the more than 3,000 service members in their search for employment.

The amount raised is more than triple the original 2021 goal of $500,000, which is incredibly benefitting for veterans and their service. Shameek Konar, CEO of Pilot Company, had this to say (via press release):
“We’re proud to support military service members and their families every day with a year-round discount at our stores. For Veterans Day, it was important that we do something special to not only thank Veterans, but also support them. We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our guests and the hard work of our team members to raise this record-setting amount for the Call of Duty Endowment that will help thousands of Veterans find their next career.”
Pilot Company has partnered with the Endowment since 2019 with the overall goal of securing employment for 100,000 Veterans by 2024. The campaign ran from October 25 to November 15, in which 750 participating U.S. travel centers raised the overall total of $1,756, 461.
