Father of Solar CEO is a 21 year veteran of the Air Force
"My close relationship with the service comes initially from my upbringing ~ my father has been inthe Air Force for 21 years," says Momentum Solar CEO Arthur Souritzidis. "We honor these individuals every day, and working with Rich Bodmer and his NASCAR race team is a way to show our appreciation. We understand the importance of the USOMNY's mission to keep service members connected to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation. We look forward to the opportunity to continue working with the USOMNY going forward."
Momentum Solar will donate to the USOMNY
Momentum, one of the fastest growing private companies in the nation and a top national solar contractor, focuses on helping preserve the environment and grow the renewable energy industry by installing solar panels on homes and businesses. To assist in this initiative, $500 will be donated to the USOMNY for every completed solar installation that is a result of the New York Auto Show. In addition, Momentum is also committed to tripling the number of veterans in the employ this year.
Recruiting veterans who want to reenter the workforce
"I'm now working with Momentum to not only help educate homeowners and business owners on the benefits of solar energy, but to bring awareness to veterans that are struggling." said Bodmer. "We look forward to networking at the New York Auto Show, help raise as many donations as we can, and recruit veterans who are looking to reenter the workforce."
Momentum's donations can help pave the way for more opportunities to work with organizations dedicated to improving both the lives of those that are on active duty, and those that have already left the service. The more successful the partnership, the more resources there are for the USOMNY to continue doing great work for Americans that deserve our utmost respect. Keeping them connected is important and Momentum looks forward to supporting it.
The New York Auto Show is from April 14th through April 23rd. Along with the latest and greatest new cars and other vehicles, a visit could also include the Momentum Solar Booth, seeing the #22 race car and helping support the USOMNY and America's service members and veterans.
