Giving Spotlight: Supporting Our Veterans
"We're grateful to have Nordstrom supporting our veterans as they pursue continued leadership and public service here at home," said Regan Turner, Executive Director of The Mission Continues, West Region. "Nordstrom has empowered our veterans to perform volunteer service projects that have positively impacted their communities, and in doing so, inspired future generations of Americans to serve their community."
Our other partner, Wounded Warrior Project, has a very clear mission: to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history. Our partnership with Wounded Warrior Project supports their Economic Empowerment programs, which help veterans finish school or vocational training programs, making it easier to land good, well-paying jobs. They also use our support in their Mind programs, which tackle the invisible wounds veterans can carry (like trauma and PTSD) through outdoor rehabilitative retreats, peer support and professional services.
Giving is just part of our commitment to veterans. Through our Supplier Diversity Program, we actively look to do business with companies that are owned by veterans, and our Talent Acquisition team is focused on pursuing opportunities that enable us to better hire, retain and support veteran employees and their family members. Our Gift Card team is also recognizing this important holiday with a Veterans Day gift card, available in-stores and online.
