Omnitracs has long been committed to giving back to the men and women who have served our great country. This year, we are pleased to once again participate in a tradition that honors our military’s fallen soldiers. For the sixth year in a row, Omnitracs joins Wreaths Across America (WAA) in remembrance of America’s veterans who have fought and died protecting our freedom.
Earlier this week, Omnitracs pledged $25,000 in support of Wreaths Across America, an organization that coordinates seasonal wreath laying ceremonies at the graves of fallen military service members nationwide. The bestowal of these funds marks $150,000 in total contributions to the initiative since 2010. We are proud and humbled to join the ranks of other industry supporters—companies, fleets, professional truck drivers—to honor or commemorate those who have selflessly served and paid the ultimate price. By pledging our support—financially and through employee volunteer efforts—Omnitracs hopes to underscore its ongoing commitment to the armed forces, while helping carry on this valued, sentimental and important tradition and display of patriotism. We salute the WAA organization for being the driving force behind such a poignant cause.
The 2015 Wreaths Across America initiative will culminate on National Wreaths Across America Day (Saturday, Dec. 12), when volunteers will lay remembrance wreaths on headstones at hundreds of veteran cemeteries throughout the U.S. and abroad. Omnitracs employee volunteers will be focused on four key regions where the company has primary business operations: Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery (Dallas), Miramar National Cemetery (San Diego, Calif.), Arlington National Cemetery (Arlington, VA.), and Fort Snelling National Cemetery (Minneapolis, Minn.). We invite and encourage employees, partners, friends and local community members to attend and show their support.
In addition, for the first year ever, Omnitracs is offering to “honor it forward,” where the company will match each employee’s gift of time with a financial donation to that employee’s choice of either the Wounded Warrior Project or Patriot Paws. We encourage our employees to participate in this corporate matching program to further demonstrate support of our country’s heroes.
