PepsiCo, through the Dream Machine Recycling Initiative, announced today a donation of $500,000 to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities, a national program offering career training, education and job creation for post-9/11 U.S. veterans with disabilities.
Since its Dream Machine program launched in 2010, PepsiCo is proud to have donated a cumulative $1.5 million to the EBV, the announcement said. In addition, the more plastic bottles and aluminum cans recycled in Dream Machine kiosks and bins across the nation and via the Dream Machine Recycle Rally program for K-12 schools, the more support PepsiCo provides to EBV.
"PepsiCo is honored to provide this donation and announce our continued support of the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities in 2013 through the Dream Machine program, which makes on-the-go recycling easier and more convenient," said Jeremy Cage, senior vice president and head of the Dream Machine Recycling Initiative, PepsiCo. "Our strategic partnership with the EBV allows recyclers to do right by our planet and U.S. veterans with disabilities, a group that has incredible skills to offer as they reenter civilian life."
