Airgas Supports Operation Homefront
On June 11, 2008 – Airgas, Inc. announced its pledge of $300,000 to Operation Homefront. The charity supports America’s soldiers by providing emergency assistance and moral support to the families left behind when troops are deployed and to wounded service members when they return home. Airgas has also set a goal to hire 100 veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Additionally, we offer our “Welding 101” course to any veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan service who is interested in a career in welding. Airgas associates nationwide have become involved in local activities and fundraisers to support Operation Homefront.
