Newark element14 supports veterans with donation to Operation Homefront

Newark element14, the electronics distributor based in Chicago, will partner with Operation Homefront to support America’s service members and their families. One of the largest and most successful national military support charities, Operation Homefront provides critical financial assistance, transitional and permanent housing, and recurring family support programs to help service members, veterans and their families stay strong, stable, and secure. Newark element14 has pledged a portion of its sales for October to Operation Homefront in recognition of Veterans Day on November 11th.

Dan Hill, President of Newark element14 said: “Newark element14 is a major supplier for the federal government and by making this pledge, we are giving something back to those veterans and their families so have given so much for their country. Operation Homefront provides critical support to families struggling not only with financial challenges, but also the problems of everyday military life. The recurring family support they provide resonates strongly with our business and we are honored to partner with such a wonderful company and group of employees to the benefit of our troops, veterans and their families.”

Ebony Strange, director of corporate partnerships at Operation Homefront said: “Operation Homefront is very excited to launch our partnership with Newark and their employees. We're grateful for the Newark team’s commitment to make a positive impact for those who have served our nation, and look forward to working together to build strong, stable, and secure military families.”
