Call of Duty Endowment of Bobby Kotick, Activision Blizzard CEO Enjoys a $1.75M Stimulus
Pilot Company partnered with The Call of Duty Endowment during a Veterans Day initiative to raise $1.75 million. Pilot Company was helping their partner to raise money. The Call of Duty Endowment enables veterans to secure good job opportunities after retiring from the military. A campaign that ran for three weeks saw the contributors break the record with some money that inspired guests to rally for some chances. The campaign was successful because it exceeded the company’s expectations of $0.5 million in 2021.
Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard partnered in the founding of the veterans’ organization in 2009. This nonprofit institution is committed to ensuring that veterans land executive jobs after serving in the military. Pilot Company participates in social responsibility, and its partnership with the nonprofit in 2019 was one of those commitments.
The idea was to ensure over 100k veterans were all employed by 2024. At least 3,000 veterans would benefit from the money raised by Pilot Company. Shameek Konar, Pilot Company’s CEO said that they had to do something unique during Veterans Day to appreciate the legends and support them accordingly. Shameek also retaliated that the guests’ kindness and team members’ hard work have overwhelmed them. The company is thankful because many veterans will settle in other careers.
Bobby Kitock supports the veterans’ nonprofit, a company that borrows a name from a famous video game. Up to date, his company donated approximately $25M. Shameek retaliated that his company is happy to brace the retired military members alongside their families daily with annual discounts at their stores.
Jim Haslam II, a veteran founded Pilot Company. On the D-Day, the company thanked the veterans and active members with a $10 free meal via an app. Pilot Company was created in 1958 in Knoxville, TN, and it now has over 800 retail stations throughout North America.
