45 Tasks a Veteran Can Do In One Day In San Angelo, TX

Posted by on June 29, 2014 in Jobs For Veterans

Everyone needs an extra set of hands sometimes. Whether it’s unpacking boxes after a move, mowing a lawn or cleaning out a garage, having someone to help you can make any job a little easier.  Hire a U.S. veteran or active duty veteran who needs a little extra income.

Did you know that we have over 450 unemployed or underemployed U.S. military veterans living right here in the Concho Valley, many of whom served one or more deployments to the middle east.

Did you also know that for most of these Veterans, there is no military retirement pension to fall back on.  And unless they came back home with some other type of service related medical/mental disability, they do not qualify for VA medical benefits.  They were gratefuly given their DD-214 (discharge papers) and a hand salute when they departed their voluntary military service.

Did you also know that we have active duty military living in San Angelo who are living on below POVERTY level wages.  Many of these veterans have families who are struggling every day to make ends meet. Many also have found it necessary to apply for government benefits such as food stamps just to survive.

I’ll bet that you didn’t know there is a San Angelo chapter of HirePatriots, a nonprofit organization who mission is to create a nationwide employment safety net for US veterans. HirePatriots is represented by veteran owned and patriotic businesses across America. Each has their own HirePatriots site and job board for their area. HeiserHouse’s owner, Scott Heiser, a 10-year U.S. Army veteran, is the Texas Ambassador for HirePatriots in the Concho Valley and maintains a job board at http://hirepatriots.com/sanangelotx.

I’ll bet you didn’t know that you can be a part of the employment safety net for U.S. veterans right here in the Concho Valley.  HirePatriots ONE DAY job board is an opportunity for you to hire a veteran for one day to help you get things done around your home or business. So many of us have long to-do lists and we don’t know where to turn when it comes to small jobs—things that don’t require a contractor or professional service.

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a HirePatriots.com website for their location. Find more information about our military programs at PatrioticHearts.org. And please make a contribution of any kind. Thank you.
