AT&T has supported active military personnel, veterans and their families for more than 80 years, when our telephone services provided much needed connectivity during World War II. We’re proud to keep current and veteran servicemembers connected — to families, battle buddies and even job opportunities — then and now.
AT&T Helps Carry the Load
This May, AT&T donated $100,000 to Carry the Load. In addition, we organized a large-scale employee volunteer effort to participate in the national relay or local city rallies across the country. Store locations around select relay routes supported relay walkers with water, energy bars and encouragement along the way. This year, 11,500 miles were walked over 23 days, on three major routes throughout the country, by thousands — and AT&T employees were there.
Over the last 5 years, AT&T has contributed or directed about $21 million to organizations and projects that support our military, veterans and their families. Our commitment to servicemembers and first responders isn’t just a competitive advantage. It’s a nearly century-old tradition.
