Veterans Day 2016: A Look Back

Veterans Day CollageLet’s look back at one of our favorite annual events – Veterans Day. Each year, we get the opportunity to thank the men and women who have put their lives on the line to protect each and every one of us. How did we celebrate this year?

Canteen for Veterans

Across the nation, our dining associates proudly wore Canteen for Heroes aprons, and all other associates supported the cause with branded t-shirts. But the celebration didn’t stop there… Throughout the month of November, monetary donations for Hiring our Heroes were collected at all Canteen locations, including the corporate office. We also encouraged our associates to share a photo of their veteran hero, so we could recognize them for their service. Take a look at the faces of our heroes!

Donations to Menlo Park

Menlo Park VeteransOur Canteen Avenel branch took celebrating Veterans Day a step further, and partnered with a local New Jersey veterans home, Menlo Park, to support their efforts. Not only did the Avenel branch donate much-needed items, their team even came together to donate a brand new television! “There is nothing more enjoyable than seeing a veteran smile,” said Debbie Sivilli, HR Generalist and Canteen Avenel team member.

This branch made such a positive impact and touched each of the veterans that reside there. Way to go, Canteen Avenel team!

On behalf of all of us at Canteen, we would like to thank all of the military men and women for their service. We look forward to celebrating with you again next year! Interested in learning more about our efforts? Check out our Veteran Recruitment page.
