My name is Mark Baird. I am the founder of HirePatriots.com. I write about everything that helps US veterans, the organizations that support them, and US small businesses.
A Corporate Social Responsibility Program
HirePatriots Corporate Social Responsibility Program
HirePatriots is the US veteran employment program for the 501c3 non-profit, Patriotic Hearts. We help thousands of US military, veterans and their families every year, and as many civilian residents too. We provide a free community job for local citizens to hire their community's veterans, or their spouses, whenever they need an extra hand with chores or repairs. This simple community outreach has grown across America into 34 states and 76 counties.
HirePatriots has received the Congressional Medal of Merit, the National Volunteer Service Medal, and the Visionary Award for creating economic development. People Magazine featured our program as "Americas Heroes Among Us." Read article HERE.
