At Walmart, we’re grateful for the sacrifice our nation’s veterans, military personnel and their families make in service to our country. So, we feel it’s our duty to support this community while they’re in uniform and when they transition back to civilian life.
Over the last decade, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation invested $40 million in programs helping veterans transitioning back to civilian life. This help benefited organizations that build and strengthen systems to help military members navigate the wide array of resources available to them at all stages of their journey.
As part of this effort, we continue to provide preference to veterans and military spouses as part of the Find-a-Future initiative. This program, along with others seeks to advance the economic opportunity and well-being of our veteran and military families. We do this through several programs, partnerships, campaigns and policies.
Today, we continue to support veterans and their families through local community grant programs. We leverage resources like our Round-Up feature on Walmart.com and Registry for Good. Since 2013, we have extended offers to more than 430,000 U.S. veterans and military spouses. In 2021 alone, we extended offers to over 52,000 veterans and 30,000 military spouses.
