Activision Blizzard has made a donation of $2 million to the Call of Duty Endowment charity to help veterans in both the US and UK find jobs, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic.
The company made the donation to the endowment this week, The Hollywood Reporter notes.
“We’ve seen a huge increase in veterans asking our partners for assistance since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dan Goldenberg, executive director of the Call of Duty Endowment, and a 27-year Navy veteran, in a statement.
“We’ve been committed to helping veterans find meaningful employment for over 10 years, but we’ve never seen anything like this. Veterans will need our help more than ever, and through Activision Blizzard’s donation and support from the gaming community, we’re well positioned to provide that help.”
The Call of Duty Endowment is the non-profit charity that Activision Blizzard founded years ago to help veterans get back to work, as there has been a lot of unemployment amongst returning veterans.
