All of the owners for Sam's Safety Equipment have served their country in combat. From World War II, to Korea and Vietnam, and into Iraq. We value the lessons and opportunities afforded us from our military experience. We are proud to be a certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business. We want to support our veteran community locally. That's why for the past 5-6 years we've been actively supporting the Lone Star Veterans Association (LSVA). An organization that we've worked with to help our corporate customers hire veterans, we've hired veterans through LSVA, and that's the one charity we regularly sponsor.
In the past we've had a veteran discount for customers that was haphazard at best. From now on we are promoting an official partnership with LSVA where we will give 25% off the purchase of any veteran getting a new job, and make a $10 donation with every veteran purchase to LSVA. We believe that veterans are the best advocates and sources of support for other veterans, and that's why we want to reward veterans that have served our country not just with a discount, but with the knowledge that they are supporting the veteran community.
We believe in the mission of LSVA that our President, Kevin Doffing, has served on the board of directors for 3 years and even become the Executive Director for the organization to professionalize the organization and create scalability in their programming that is focused on advancing careers and strengthening families. The organization does amazing things to give veterans a community of peers that they can rely on as they transition from the military into the civilian workforce, as well as give back to the next group of transitioning service members. They lead 15-20 events a month across the Greater Houston area building the community of veterans. We couldn't be prouder to support such a fine organization.
