Continuum Veterans Foundation, which helps returning troops find jobs in the IT industry, has announced that it will hold its first fundraising gala on April 20, 2017 with Pittsburgh Steelers legend and Army Veteran Andy Russell attending as keynote speaker. Held at the famous Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum in Pittsburgh, PA, the gala will benefit Georgia-based Hire Heroes USA, an organization dedicated to creating job opportunities for U.S. military veterans and their spouses through employment training and corporate engagement.
In 2016 alone, Hire Heroes USA succeeded in helping 6,320 veterans get hired by providing services to 1,487 transition workshop participants, creating 13,495 final resumes, working with 14,872 new clients and conducting 123,724 career counseling sessions. The funds raised at April’s gala will go towards supporting more of these services throughout 2017 and beyond, as Hire Heroes USA looks to empower more veterans and their spouses with the skills and opportunities they need for success in the workplace.
