Boot Campaign Partners with Hewlett Packard to Pay Honor and Gratitude to Troops Through Annual HP Home of the Brave Veterans Day Campaign.

Austin, TX (December 5, 2013) – The Boot Campaign was built on the principal of expressing gratitude for those who serve our country.  So we were thrilled when Hewlett Packard approached us about participating in their annual HP Home of the Brave campaign. Knowing that this program would give back to Veterans across the country, the Boot Campaign jumped on the chance to get involved in any way possible! HP Home of the Brave was created in 2012 to thank Veterans for their service.  Always held around Veterans Day, the 15 day, nationwide program consists of planned activities and patient visits at VA Medical Centers (VAMC’s) and by employee donations of basic personal items.  

The 2013 HP Home of the Brave campaign was supported by HP Corporate Affairs, chapters of the Veteran Employee Resource Network (VERN), charity partner Boot Campaign, and corporate partners Bristol-Meyers Squibb, Intelligent Insites, i4DM, and By Light. www.hphomeofthebrave.com
