Victor, N.Y. AUGUST 19, 2021
REDCOM Laboratories, Inc., a leading supplier of the world’s most reliable and interoperable communications solutions, was proud to sponsor and participate in the 2021 Pound the Ground for Veterans Outreach Center (VOC) for the fourth consecutive year. The event took place at Mendon Ponds Park in Honeoye Falls on Wednesday, August 18, 2021. The event was held in person this year with a virtual option for participants from August 18 to August 22nd.
In its 13th year, Pound the Ground supports the men, women, and families served by the Veterans Outreach Center of Rochester (VOC). The REDCOM team, made up of employees and family members, participated in the 5k run and walk, where each stride helped to benefit the VOC.
“REDCOM is proud to continue its corporate sponsorship of the Veterans Outreach Center’s (VOC) Pound the Ground event. Veterans comprise over 15% of our current workforce, and we are honored to be able to partner with the VOC in many ways and further our support of Veterans and their families,” said REDCOM’s Director of Human Resources, Kara Martin. “VOC programming provides an integral bridge for transitioning service members and their spouses, as well as continued outreach to and programming for all Veterans. REDCOM’s rich history as an employer focused on Veteran hiring is a true compliment to their mission. We are grateful for their work in our community.”
Beyond hosting events like Pound the Ground, the VOC provides a number of free services such as housing assistance, employment, wellness services, counseling, and more for the benefit of Rochester area veterans. REDCOM Customer Engineer and U.S. Navy Veteran Mike Crissey ran his fourth Pound the Ground and said, “Being a veteran, I like to support veteran organizations and veteran-related causes, and I’m proud to work for a company that does too. With Pound the Ground supporting the Veterans Outreach Center and local veterans, it was a natural fit for me. Go Navy!”
