U.S. Bank announced last week that it will accept donations to Operation Homefront, a military support nonprofit group that provides emergency assistance to wounded soldiers and their families, at more than 2,900 ATMs across 25 states.
Between Oct. 30 and Nov. 20, bank customers can donate from their primary checking or savings account in amounts ranging from $5 to $299.
“U.S. Bank is a strong supporter of the military and veterans, and we’re honored to assist in this effort to help Operation Homefront meets its mission,” U.S. Bancorp Chairman, President and CEO Richard Davis said. “American service members and wounded warriors put their lives on the line every day to protect and defend our great nation, and we’re proud to be their financial partner.”
The bank supports active duty and veteran employees, providing resources to managers to help support them. U.S. Bank has a Proud to Serve program, which focuses on hiring military veterans, and a military service center dedicated to customer service for military members and their families.
“Many Americans want to support our military families, but don’t always know how,” Jim Knotts, the president and CEO of Operation Homefront, said. “U.S. Bank is making it easy for their customers to make a difference in the lives of these families that sacrifice so much for all of us. We’re grateful to U.S. Bank and their customers for their commitment to our men and women in uniform.”
U.S. Bank is a winner of the 2013 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award and was recognized by G.I. Jobs as a top-100 “military friendly” employer in 2011 and 2012. The bank was listed in “Veterans Magazine’s” 2012 Best of the Best. Military Times has named the bank a top employer for three years.
