University Of Phoenix And MGM Resorts International Support American Red Cross Through Service To The Armed Forces Giving Program

WASHINGTON, May 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Red Cross partners University of Phoenix ® and MGM Resorts International have become founding members of the Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) Giving Program, which helps support members of the U.S. military, veterans and their families.

The program marks its first anniversary this month, closely coinciding with Armed Forces Day on May 18, when America honors and recognizes the critical contributions of our nation's service members. Members of the SAF Giving Program are corporations and foundations that make an annual commitment to support Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces.   

"We are incredibly thankful for University of Phoenix and MGM Resorts' contributions to the SAF Giving Program," said Sherri Brown, senior vice president of Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces. "It is this kind of generosity that makes it possible for the Red Cross to help thousands of service members, veterans and their families each year."

University of Phoenix has committed to support SAF programs and services, along with the entire Red Cross mission. One way the University is working with the Red Cross is through their "Start Strong" career events that took place at University of Phoenix campuses across the country to help veterans, active-duty service members and their families prepare for professional success after the military. These "Start Strong" events provide a way for the Red Cross and University of Phoenix to engage active-duty service members, their families and veterans—through teaching preparedness skills and offering a way for the military community to get involved in volunteer service.

MGM Resorts is supporting the "Boots to Business" program, which, in partnership with the Red Cross, provides pre-employment support services and management training to prepare veterans for managerial positions with MGM Resorts. "Boots to Business" also provides deployment support for current MGM employees who are called to duty, as well as ongoing support in the form of mentoring and networking.
