Amazon has provided a $10,000 donation to Tristate Veterans Community Alliance to support its work with area veterans as they transition from military to civilian life.

“As one of the country’s leading community-based, collective impact, non-profits serving veterans and families in transition, the TVCA is proud to partner with Amazon and support the great work they are doing to help veterans and spouses find new careers,” said Dan Knowles, TVCA’s president and CEO.

“Their generous contribution to the TVCA will enable us to attract those leaving the military to the Tristate region and help connect those here that are currently struggling with the 130+ partners we work with locally.”   

Amazon is committed to supporting veterans and military spouses, both within the company and the community.

Last year, the company pledged to hire 25,000 veterans by 2021 and are making great progress toward that goal, currently employing more than 17,500 veterans and military spouses in various roles company-wide.

Amazon values the leadership skills and problem-solving abilities that veterans bring to its 75 U.S. fulfillment centers, and the company’s dedicated military recruiting team has worked closely with TVCA over the last couple of years on opportunities to recruit and provide jobs to veterans in the local Northern Kentucky-Cincinnati area.
