This month, GameStop is partnering with the Call of Duty Endowment to donate money to help veterans find jobs.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of service members transition out of the military and start their search for a civilian job. So GameStop is working with a nonprofit founded by the CEO of Call of Duty-maker Activision Blizzard, to raise money to help.
Since 2012, GameStop and the Endowment have been partnering to raise money for veterans. This is the eighth year of the partnership that GameStop says has led to almost 8,000 veterans being "placed in quality careers" most of whom are post-9/11 enlisted men and women.
“Every $521 dollars raised for the Endowment puts one veteran back to work — that’s 1/6 the cost per placement of federal government efforts. This partnership makes a huge difference for veterans and for each of their families,” said Dan Goldenberg, executive director for the Endowment. “With GameStop’s incredible support, we’re more confident than ever that we'll reach our goal of placing 100,000 veterans by 2024.”
