Womens clothing retailer Altar’d State has chosen to support HVAF through its Mission Monday initiative, declaring that 10 percent of all sales made on Mondays in May and June at its Indianapolis location will be donated to HVAF. The organization began Mission Monday as a philanthropic effort to use its position in the retail industry to give back.
Altar’d State employees will also volunteer time at HVAF properties throughout the coming months to further its partnership with HVAF. One project they plan on helping with is organizing HVAF’s clothing pantry- a task that their retail experience will help them complete.
“We decided to support HVAF because we were deeply moved by its mission and want to do everything we can to help support and enrich the lives of homeless veterans in our community,” said Mission Monday Captain Jessica Oaks.
Altar’d State employees connect with the mission of HVAF not only because their organization values giving back, but because they have family members and friends who are veterans that have taught them the importance of honoring America’s heroes.
