At Exodus, we are proud to be an American moving and storage company. Concerned participants in the communities in which we live and work, we are not only premier movers in Colorado but grateful citizens of a great country. Every day, US military soldiers come back from various assignments all over the globe. They have trained to dutifully and selflessly serve our country and to defend the freedoms we take advantage of daily.
The military is an amazing place to learn about hard work, discipline and focus. We feel these attributes along with an overriding spirit of loyalty are just a few of the traits that make our company so successful. We currently have the wonderful opportunity to expand our organization. In an effort to support these fine men and women, Exodus has become increasingly committed to hiring veterans to be a part of our team. Over the next couple of years of our expansion, we plan to hire 25-300 new employees with an emphasis of up to 70% being those who have previously served in our military.
Hire Patriots, Colorado
Originally founded to support Marines who had returned from war to find financial and personal hardship of all kinds, this organization started out with a truly grass roots beginning. In 2004 Mark and Tori Baird had a vision of creating a network that would bring much needed resources to veterans who were attempting to transition back into civilian life. In response to a need they saw and felt must be addressed, they sold their house and used the proceeds to build what is now known as Hire Patriots. This 501C3 web-based support medium has grown in leaps and bounds and is now one of the largest networks for transitional military support in the US.
Colorado Hire Patriots focuses on all aspects of re-assimilation into everyday life back at home. This includes not only the practical financial aspects but the emotional ones as well. Creating a forum for day job and full time work placements through job boards, listings and job fairs as well as marriage retreats and trauma support resources is just the beginning of the work done by this organization. At Exodus, we are proud to partner with them not only through the direct hire of veterans but to extend our volunteer hours and word of mouth support to their worthwhile events. In cooperation with this organization in addition to the Rocky Mountain Veterans Alliance and the SEAKR Foundation, we are excited to be a part of making a positive impact towards the promotion of patriotism in our community.
On October 8, 2010 at the Curtis Hotel in Denver, Exodus Moving and Storage presented the first annual SEAKR foundation gala. An evening of fine food & wine, silent auction, music and inspirational guest speakers, the night was a remarkable success. We were amazed at the support given to us by the community, the mayor’s office and the many local businesses that backed the families of fallen soldiers here in Colorado.
Because of the dedication of the caring businesses and individuals involved in this event, we were able to raise more than $15,000 for these families in need. And the best part is that the donations keep rolling in! As a result of these community efforts, we have been able to reach out to a family that desperately needed our help and save them from homelessness. We are currently evaluating new military families for what we can do to make them part of the SEAKR family. We learned a lot from our first event and we are looking forward to our next one where our hope is to raise more than $50,000 and add two new families to the SEAKR beneficiary list.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make this important evening possible and we look forward to seeing more of our friends, customers and family at the 2nd Annual SEAKR event next October.
The Exodus Team
There is nothing casual about the casualties of war. And when a soldier gives their life for their country, there is surely no greater a sacrifice. But as those left behind attempt to recover emotionally from such a loss, often they are also plagued by the practical difficulties of financial turmoil. While the military attempts to supplement this monetary loss, very often, these payments come up short leaving grieving families with nowhere to turn.
That’s why we support SEAKR.
The SEAKR Foundation is a unique, private non-profit organization dedicated to supporting military families whose spouse or parent was killed in action while serving our country.
On October 8, 2010 the SEAKR Foundation is holding their annual dinner and silent auction to raise awareness and funds. With a fantastic cause and program, we will celebrate the induction of 5 new Colorado families now supported by the SEAKR Foundation.
