Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group® is proud to recognize those who currently serve and those who have served in our nation’s armed forces. National Military Appreciation Month was enacted by Congress in 1999 to give the public the opportunity to acknowledge and honor both past and present military members. In honor of Military Appreciation Month, Atlantic Bay showed veterans and active duty service members their gratitude throughout the month of May.
“Our military families make countless sacrifices for our country each day,” said CEO Brian Holland. “Here at Atlantic Bay, we are constantly looking for ways to show appreciation and gratitude to our nation’s heroes for all that they do to protect us.”
Atlantic Bay celebrated this special month companywide by participating in numerous volunteer opportunities and charitable events, including:
Golf Fore Gratitude Atlantic Bay kicked off military appreciation month a little early on April 27th and raised more than $10,000 during the inaugural Golf Fore Gratitude golf tournament benefitting Operation Gratitude. Operation Gratitude is a nonprofit volunteer-based organization that annually sends 200,000+ care packages, including personal letters of appreciation, to veterans.
USS Wisconsin For the third consecutive year Atlantic Bay volunteered at the USS Wisconsin during Military Appreciation Month. Employees helped restore parts of the ship and assisted in preparing it for tours.
Crushin’ on Pets4Vets Atlantic Bay Cares, the philanthropic arm of Atlantic Bay, hosted the inaugural Crushin’ on Pets4Vets in collaboration with Nowzad on May 18th. This organization reunites soldiers with the dogs and cats they rescue and bond with during their deployment.
Buy a Veteran a Beer Atlantic Bay partnered with Young Veterans Brewing Co. once again this year to host Buy a Veteran a Beer. Atlantic Bay was able to buy more than 300 beers for service members on May 19th.
Warbirds Over the Beach Air Show Atlantic Bay also volunteered at the historical Aviation Museum for the Warbirds Over the Beach air show on May 19.
Atlantic Bay will continue to support and honor our military into the month of June, where the company will be a corporate sponsor at the Patriotic Fest, June 2-4. Employees also plan to volunteer with Wave Warriors, a non-profit that assists injured service members in catching the perfect wave, on June 3rd.
