Saluting Our Nation’s Troops — and the Heroes of the Postmates Fleet
If you’re anything like the rest of us, you’re enjoying a day off from the corporate grind and a chance to indulge in America’s greatest delicacies — hot dogs and brews, poolside with friends this Memorial Day.
But no matter how you’re celebrating the long weekend, we ask you to join us in remembering what this day is about — giving thanks to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting our freedom.
In honor of Memorial Day, National Military Appreciation Month, and the veterans of Postmates Fleet, we’re contributing $10,000 to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), whose mission is to ensure that veterans and their families are supported, protected, empowered, and never forgotten. And furthermore, we are proud to celebrate the real heroes of Postmates Fleet by making this donation in their names.
Meet some of them now —
