Inspire your Team with this Community Project

This is a great employee engagement project that will receive local & national media attention for your company. 


In 2004, a U.S. Marine knocked on Mark & Tori's door and asked for help. That encounter changed their lives and has positively affected hundreds of thousands of lives since. Listen to Mark and Tori tell their heart-breaking and heart-warming story. Few Americans really understand how many sacrifices our US veterans and their families endure.


Mark and Tori created a simple but powerful community project that connects neighborhoods and businesses with their local US military and veterans in a way that helps them all. It is a win-win-win. In San Diego where this program began it has assisted tens thousands of civilians, military members, and businesses. The program is so effective and popular that it was voted 'News Story of the Year' by the local media. And they received the Visionary Award for stimulating the local economy, the Extra Mile Award from the Chamber of Commerce, and the Leadership Award. The County Supervisors appreciated the program's contribution to San Diego so much that they awarded them $100,000 to assure its continued success.


This program is now active in 33 states and 75 cities across America. Hundreds of organizations and businesses have incorporated this unique project into their community outreach efforts. Most importantly, this patriotic program provides a lasting, vital, free service that helps every demographic in any community, especially local US military and veterans.


For more information and to see how this can be an employee volunteer program within your company, please contact us.

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 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 website for their location. We also hold welcome home parties, military marriage retreats, job fairs and create military family gardens.
