East Greenwich, RI (November 5, 2019) - In conjunction with November as “Military Family Month,” Corvias, a long-term solutions and management partner to the U.S. military, is providing significant enhanced awards, giveaways and opportunities to honor and benefit service members and families.
“From day one nearly 20 years ago and continuing today, Corvias operates with a mission to provide the absolute best service to those who serve our country,” said John Picerne, founder of Corvias and Corvias Foundation, “This means helping military spouses and children of active-duty service members on a daily basis in our communities, as well as supporting them in achieving their greater goals, including professional and educational.”
“Corvias puts service members and their families first and is committed to solving our partner's most difficult challenges while also building strong communities,” said Picerne. “Military Family Month is an opportunity for us to honor military families who sacrifice so much each and every day. We look forward to showing our gratitude to the more than 26,000 families stationed across our 13 military installations coast to coast.”
This month, Corvias will show its appreciation in a number of ways including:
- The announcement of four-year university scholarships from the Corvias Foundation of up to $50,000, for eligible high school graduating children of active-duty service members stationed at any of the 13 installations where Corvias provides housing or Gold Star children and spouses, stationed at any installation.
$5,000 scholarship awards for 20 military spouses, which can be used in any way to help them complete their degree, including tuition, childcare or transportation.
- Hosting Thanksgiving dinner for single and unaccompanied soldiers and providing active-duty service members with Thanksgiving dinner food baskets.
- Sponsorship of large events, such as the annual Barn Bash and Pumpkin Smash at Rick’s Place, a 50-acre veteran and military family park near Fort Bragg, and USO Family Fun Night at Fort Riley.
- Weekly giveaways, turkey raffles, movie and bowling nights and more across all military installations.
In addition, Corvias employees are on track to donate nearly $100,000 to organizations in their communities, which is then matched by Corvias on a two-for-one basis.
Corvias has worked alongside the Department of Defense for more than 20 years to support military families by holistically improving their quality of life. The Corvias culture fosters a caring partnership to help those in our communities achieve their mission. Since founding Corvias in 1998, Picerne’s passion for problem solving and giving back has set the expectation that each installation provides first-class programming to residents.
Throughout 2019, Corvias has continuously reaffirmed its dedication to military families with the launch of The Corvias Commitment™ in February and the announcement of a $325 million capital investment into its military portfolio in September. The Corvias Commitment and the investment are geared toward improving responsiveness and communication and offering excellent service for residents. Corvias’ capital investment will continue to fund improvements in service, as well as modernization and renovations to homes across its military properties.
In addition, Corvias Foundation, which was established by Picerne in 2006, supports the families of those who serve in the military. The Foundation has awarded more than 430 scholarships, or nearly $14 million, to military children, spouses, and children of Corvias employees across 13 Army and Air Force installations.
