The Rosland Capital team was mentioned in My Fox LA’s Good Day LA coverage during Memorial Day’s Walk for Warriors event put on by New Directions for Veterans. Rosland Capital raised over $10,000 for the cause, which helps support homeless and needy veterans.
“It’s the New Directions for Veterans 4th annual Walk for Warriors Memorial Day 5k. This is a wonderful organization that helps end homelessness among veterans. The event this morning is being held at the veterans facility in West Los Angeles off Wilshire Blvd, on the west side of the 405 here across from the National Cemetery. Participants are walking and running to honor the war dead and help the veterans assimilate back into non-combat life. Too many of our heroes are without work and homeless, and New Directions has dedicated itself to ending this problem. Christine Devine, our anchor on the 10:00 news is very active in this organization. Rosland Capital, you may have heard of the precious metal company, they’re based in Santa Monica and have a team participating here in the run and walk today. They pride themselves in hiring as many veterans as possible. We need more Rosland Capital’s out there. Believe it or not, Tony, over 6,000 homeless vets are still here just in Los Angeles alone, and we have to drop that number significantly.”
