ABC Supply Co. Inc., reports that it is on track to hire 400 veterans this year — surpassing the company’s previous goal in 2022 of hiring one veteran per day.
As ABC Supply notes, veterans often encounter difficulties when seeking post-service employment. The roofing distributor is committed to supporting these heroes and providing opportunities for them to find rewarding, lifelong careers. The company’s collaborations with organizations such as Military.com, RecruitMilitary and Army Partnership for Your Success (PaYS) help fulfill this hiring pledge by connecting ABC Supply with talented U.S. veterans.
“ABC Supply is a great fit for veterans,” said Leah Dixon, ABC Supply’s recruiting manager. “We offer an abundance of opportunities to leverage the skills they earned in the military. Our nation’s heroes will find a family at ABC Supply that welcomes them with open arms, has a strong sense of patriotism and acknowledges the benefits they bring to our locations across the country.”
In addition to hiring initiatives, ABC Supply reaffirms its commitment to veterans by:
- Supporting and fundraising for Homes For Our Troops: Since 2020, ABC Supply has been a platinum corporate partner of Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) — a nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 veterans. Additionally, in 2022 and 2023, ABC Supply raised money for Homes For Our Troops through our Indy 500 donation campaign. This year, we raised over $2 million for HFOT — and, with ABC Supply’s $1 million match, donated over $3 million to help veterans rebuild their lives.
- Showing respect and support for veterans: ABC Supply locations across the country and at the National Support Center led their own initiatives to recognize and thank veterans for their service. From Red Shirt Fridays to a special edition veterans company booklet to coordinating private fundraising events and volunteering at HFOT homes, ABC Supply demonstrates a sense of American Pride and devotion to supporting veterans.
“At ABC Supply, we deeply believe that veterans deserve our respect, support and thanks,” said Mike Jost, ABC Supply’s chief operating officer. “Our partnership with organizations like Homes For Our Troops and welcoming veterans to our family reaffirms our commitment to the military community.”
