In honor of Military Appreciation Month in May, Pilot Company is furthering its commitment to helping veterans transition back into the workforce with a $100,000 donation to Hire Heroes USA. The organization helps provide quality employment opportunities to military veterans and spouses.

Pilot Company is also thanking service members and their families with several free offers in the myRewards Plus app* throughout May.

Hire Heroes USA is a leading veteran employment nonprofit that has helped thousands of military members, veterans and military spouses successfully transfer their skills into the civilian workforce. The $100,000 donation from Pilot Company will provide Hire Heroes USA with the resources needed to guide more military members through the transition process, including placing more veterans into careers at Pilot.

"From our Pilot family to all the military families across the country, thank you for your bravery, service and sacrifice," said Brian Ferguson, Chief Merchant at Pilot Company and Air Force veteran. "This Military Appreciation Month, we want to show our gratitude by treating service members to free snacks and drinks during their travels and by joining Hire Heroes USA to connect veterans with resources and opportunities to pursue their career ambitions after leaving the service."
