On Monday, May 30, Team Rosland Capital participated in the 6th Annual Walk for Warriors Memorial Day 5K. The event benefited New Directions for Veterans, which provides programs and services, veteran service agencies and shelter/housing opportunities to help veterans get back on their feet after returning home from war. Fox 11 news anchor Christine Devine hosted the event. In its third consecutive year, Rosland Capital was named the top fundraiser of the event, raising more than $10,000 for the organization.
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.”
The New Directions for Veterans’ 4th Annual “Walk for Warriors” 5k took place this past Memorial Day weekend on the Veterans Affairs Campus in West Los Angeles. Rosland Capital participated in the event, sending a team of 20 volunteers and raising over $10,000 to directly benefit the New Directions cause. Team Rosland Capital was the top donor for the event.
Founded in 1992, New Directions for Veterans provides services to hundreds of veterans and their families, their overall mission to decrease the number of homeless veterans living in the United States today. There are currently over 6,000 homeless veterans in the Los Angeles area alone that New Directions seeks to provide with services such as transitional housing, therapy and job hunt assistance.
The walk will honor those who have served and those currently serving in the United Stares Armed Forces and will help veterans who come back from service and find themselves homeless. The walk is put on by New Directions, a non-profit that provides services to veterans. The organization aids more than 600 men and women each year and more than 225 veterans receive care at five treatment centers.
This will be the 4th Annual Memorial Day Walk for Warriors 5k Run/Walk on the Veterans Affairs Campus in West Los Angeles.
