Supporting America’s Veterans

Envistacom has a strong history of both giving back to veterans and hiring veterans. In the past year, we have worked closely with Meals on Wheels Atlanta, The Warrior Alliance, Habitat for Humanity, Atlanta United (MLS team), and the Veterans Empowerment Organization (VEO).
Our team members have come together, in partnership with Meals on Wheels and the Warrior Alliance, to deliver meals to homebound veterans. This has become a heartfelt tradition that is meaningful to those giving and those receiving.
The VEO in Atlanta has become an integral partner in our efforts. The VEO’s mission is to empower veterans along their journey to self-sufficiency. Envistacom is helping them to be true to their mission by donating highly needed items such as new sheets and pillows and other household items for the veterans who reside on campus. Working with the VEO has been a rewarding experience in knowing that Envistacom has been a part of improving the lives of veterans.
Being a part of recording the stories of veterans was a dynamic project completed in conjunction with Atlanta United MLS. Working together we captured and listened to the time-honored stories of several veterans across various wars who have served our country in many capacities. Their stories have been preserved for generations to listen to and learn from. Watch the videos on our YouTube channel.
In June 2021, Envistacom teamed up with Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia, Inc. to paint the exterior of a home on one of their Veteran Home Repair projects. Habitat for Humanity supports U.S. veterans, military service members, and their families by taking care of critical home repairs through this initiative.
Hiring military veterans continues to be a strong focus for Envistacom with over 50% of our team members being military veterans. We were also excited to be included in the 2020 Best for Vets Employers ranking by the Military Times which reflects Envistacom’s ongoing commitment to providing opportunities and an environment for success for U.S. military. Active reservists are supported when they go on active duty throughout the year. Envistacom even sponsors a special night out for vets at an Atlanta United game during the soccer season.
In honor of last month’s military appreciation month and Memorial Day, thank you to all the brave men and women who have served our nation!
