SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) June 04, 2019
The charitable efforts of GovX—the online shopping site exclusively for current and former military, first responders, and federal employees—reached a significant milestone at the beginning of June, when the total funds raised for nonprofits dedicated to American uniformed pros exceeded $250,000.
Since the inception of GovX's inaugural Give Back program in October of 2015, which sponsored US Expeditions and Exploration—a 501c3 nonprofit that organized an Army-led team to the summit of Mount Everest—GovX has since donated to a total of 26 non-profits.
"Since launching GovX Gives Back, we have worked with organizations that support every branch of the military, law enforcement, firefighters and their families," said Alan Cole, GovX CEO. "As we grow our core business, we’re also expanding our ability to make a bigger impact for these worthy causes through direct contributions and advocacy. This genuine commitment to the mission is what attracts great team members to GovX, and we truly believe that our success as a business must be measured beyond the bottom line."
