OST Supports Operation Jump-Start 2013
Washington, D.C., January 2013 – OST is proud to participate in the 9th Annual Operation Jump-Start taking place at the Army Navy Club in Arlington, Virginia on February 4, 2013, 5:30-8:30 p.m. OST is currently running a company-wide drive to collect professional clothing, money, and gift certificate donations, and OST employees will be at the event. Donations will also be accepted onsite.
Operation Jump-Start assists members of our military in their transition from service to civilian life and entry into the workforce. Soldiers may be recovering from injury, and, with their families, are adjusting to meet emotional or educational needs—all striving to build new lives. Donations collected for Operation Jump-Start will go directly to support these service members and their families.
This is the third time that OST has participated in Operation Jump-Start. As soldiers return home to varying circumstances, Operation Jump-Start advocates for these men and women by recommending donations appropriate for those that are either recovering from injury or beginning to build a new career. Recommendations include cash or gift cards to coffee shops, grocery stores, or drugstores to service members that are recovering from injury, or need assistance on a deposit or a bill payment. Those entering the workforce will benefit from donations of collect gently worn, dry cleaned professional clothing. Formal wear is also accepted, as these service members and their significant others are often invited to attend formal functions.
