The Call of Duty Endowment continues to help ex-military members find jobs thanks to $1.75 million in additional funding. The funding was secured with a partnership with The Pilot Company.
The Pilot Company
The Pilot Company has always offered benefits to its military members. It has a military discount program included, and for Veteran’s Day, they gave all active-duty military members a free $10 meal.
The Pilot Company decorated the Pilot Flying J No. 1 Chevrolet during two NASCAR races. The car was painted with a collage of a few of the people The Call of Duty Endowment has already helped. The car ran at Martinsville Speedway and Phoenix Raceway on October 30th and November 6th.
The Call of Duty Endowment and Bobby Kotick
The Call of Duty Endowment gets its name from the hit video game series Call of Duty. The program was founded by Bobby Kotick, the CEO of Activision Blizzard, the developer and publisher of the game. Its intention was to help out-of-work ex-military get lifelong careers. The Call of Duty endowment fund wanted to do more than simply help them find jobs. They wanted to help them find careers that they could stick with and grow alongside.
Thanks to the funding raised alongside The Pilot Company, 3,000 more returning military members will be assisted in finding work.
The Call of Duty Endowment has been in operation since Bobby Kotick learned that around %30 of returning military members can’t find work. Bobby Kotick and his non-profit have since helped countless people find work, even expanding to the United Kingdom, helping out allies overseas as well.
