ATLANTA, Ga., May 14, 2018 – Envistacom is proud to announce that the company has been selected as the military outreach partner of Atlanta United for the 2018 – 2020 Major League Soccer (MLS) seasons.
Cultivated from a shared commitment and passion for serving the military community, Envistacom’s three-year partnership with Atlanta United includes outreach programs designed to support and honor active duty and deployed military personnel, veterans and military families.
“We are proud to welcome Envistacom as the Military Outreach Partner of Atlanta United,” said Darren Eales, president, Atlanta United. “Military initiatives are an important part of our foundation’s work and a significant focus for the Blank Family of Businesses. We look forward to working with Envistacom to drive impactful engagement with the military community.”
Envistacom’s first mission as military outreach partner is the company’s role as title sponsor of Atlanta United’s inaugural Salute our Troops initiative, with activities kicking off on May 14, 2018. Envistacom-led activities and events include:
- Organizing an exclusive, annual youth soccer clinic at a Georgia military base, with the event facilitated by Atlanta United coaches and players
- Hosting Atlanta United match viewing-parties at military bases abroad, where Envistacom is responsible for coordinating the game parties and facilitating connectivity between the match and the units overseas
- Lounge makeovers at local U.S. Veteran’s Affairs hospitals, to make areas where military members and their families await medical care more comfortable
Envistacom will also lead community engagement with local ROTC/JROTC, Active Duty military and local law enforcement Honor Guards, hand-selecting groups to attend Atlanta United home games as distinguished guests, where these teams will lead the crowd in the National Anthem.
“Envistacom is proud to be selected as the official military outreach partner of Atlanta United. This opportunity truly represents the mission at the heart of our organization, supporting our local Atlanta community as well as veterans and active servicemen and servicewomen around the world,” said Alan Carson, senior vice president, Envistacom. “We are grateful to share this mission with the Atlanta United organization, and look forward to beginning our work together with the 2018 Salute our Troops initiative.”
