Suits to veterans transitioning from the military
On May 6th, DVNF teamed up with Onward2Opportunity (O2O) to give out new suits to veterans, as well as a full outfit of business clothing to these transitioning service members in North Carolina. The event marked the second shipment of business attire DVNF has sent this year through its corporate sponsor, Joseph A. Bank.
Nearly $150,000 worth of dress clothing was given to the veterans who will graduate from O2O’s vocational training program on May 19th. The goal of the shipment was to equip these veterans with new business clothing so they could be prepared for interviews and employment in a new civilian career.

Onward 2 Opportunity is a comprehensive training and career placement service for transitioning service members. They also provide training and testing for real world certifications. Some of these certifications include IT, Project Management, Hotel Management, JAVA, and Customer Service.
The event was a tremendous success! In total, 53 veterans got a new wardrobe to prepare them for their future careers. It was a true honor to give back to the heroes who have already given so much. We wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors. Hopefully, we were able to make a meaningful contribution to their inevitable success!
We’d like to thank Onward2Opportunity for allowing us to be a part of their efforts to prepare veterans for life as a civilian. In addition, we’d like to give a big thank you to Joseph A. Bank for their commitment to our heroes!
