The Boeing Company today announced a $1.4 million donation to help assist with humanitarian relief efforts for Afghan allies as well as initiatives to support and honor U.S. Military veterans and their families.
Following the recent 20th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Boeing is also donating $400,000 to support 9/11 Day, Blue Star Families, Operation Gratitude, The Mission Continues and Travis Manion Foundation. The company – in coordination with its 33 active Boeing Veterans Engagement Team (BVET) chapters – is also engaged in a number of ongoing service projects, wellbeing initiatives and kit packing projects in support of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans.
“Our charitable investments focus on supporting rehabilitation and recovery efforts that heal the visible and invisible wounds of war for veterans, their families and survivors. We are also proud to support Afghan allies who stood alongside U.S. and coalition service members and provided critical support for years during military operations in Afghanistan,” said Stan Deal, president and chief executive officer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes and enterprise executive sponsor of BVET.
