Gary Tompkins and The Kidder Group are working with The Honor Foundation and business leader John Sterling to help Navy SEALs as they transition to the civilian world. In addition to meeting with Navy SEALs personally, Gary is helping to organize networking events to help SEALs connect and planning fundraising events to raise money for The Honor Foundation. While the SEALs are visiting in September, they will be able to meet with business leaders at the HR Professionals Executive Lunch and the Executive Sponsor Network 2nd Annual Reception. Gary is also very excited about raising funds and awareness at the First Annual Honor Foundation Oyster Roast the same week.
The benefits to the SEALs and the impacts on the community are explained further in this article from The Upstate Business Journal.
