MGM Resorts International, Kangaroo Express, And University Of Phoenix Team With American Red Cross Through Service To The Armed Forces Giving Program

Stocks in this article: APOL MGM

WASHINGTON, May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Supporting members of the U.S. military, veterans and their families is an important part of the mission of the American Red Cross, and MGM Resorts International, University of Phoenix ®, and now Pantry/Kangaroo Express, help that important effort through the Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) Giving Program.

American Red Cross

This program was started in May 2012, coinciding with Armed Forces Day 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 to the University of Phoenix and MGM Resorts for their continued contributions to the SAF Giving Program and welcome Kangaroo Express in its commitment to supporting our work with the military community," said Sherri Brown, senior vice president of Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces. "The Red Cross helps thousands of service members, veterans and their families each year and the generous support of these organizations helps to ensure the Red Cross will be there for our military for years to come."

Kangaroo Express is the latest organization to join the Red Cross' military support mission through the Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) Giving Program.  This summer, customers shopping at Kangaroo Express will have the opportunity to give back through a customer donation program helping to provide continued Red Cross services to America's military families. Kangaroo Express is the leading independently operated convenience store chain in southeastern United States, operated by The Pantry, Inc.

"Considering more than one-third of our employees have a direct connection to the military, supporting our troops is supporting our family," said Gordon Schmidt, senior vice president of Operations, Kangaroo Express. "This summer, our guests and associates will rally together for the fourth annual Kangaroo Express Salute Our Troops campaign to raise funds for dedicated military support organizations like the American Red Cross' Service to the Armed Forces. It is through these organizations that we are able to help support our military families when they need it most."

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 assistance in the form of mentoring and networking.
