Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
With Veterans Day fast approaching, CCA, America's leader in partnership corrections, is proud to be a dedicated supporter of our troops through its annual Patriot Packages campaign.
Now in its fourth year, CCA's Patriot Packages aims to bring joy to employees, immediate family members of employees and entire military units.
"Since 2010 we've supported our deployed and active duty employees and employee relatives in the service with care packages and letters," said Pam Gray, CCA Employee Relations. "Approximately 1,600 individuals in CCA's nationwide workforce – fully 10 percent – have military backgrounds. Our gesture goes a long way to lift their spirits."
At the company's more than 60 facilities nationwide, employees have donated lots of familiar snacks, personal care items and written heartfelt letters of thanks. And the goal now is to send enough to an employee or employee relative so an entire unit can share.
"We don't want any of our heroes to be forgotten," said Gray. "They are hard at work every day protecting our freedoms. This is the least we can do to say thanks."
Items for CCA Patriot Packages collected during the month of October will be shipped from every CCA facility in November, with the goal of arriving on or near Veteran's Day, November 11, 2013.
Since 2007, G.I. Jobs magazine has distinguished CCA as a leading company for service members interested in transitioning into a civilian career. In 2012 the company was ranked 40th on the magazine's annual "Top 100 Military-Friendly Employers" list, for its hiring practices of military veterans, National Guard and Reserve members.
