On Monday, May 30, Rosland Capital participated in the 6th Annual Walk for Warriors Memorial Day 5K presented by New Directions for Veterans. The event was sponsored by Bank of America, West LA Chamber of Commerce, SoCalGas, Boston Scientific and Brentwood Village Chamber of Commerce.
Team Rosland Capital was deemed the top fundraising team at the event for the third consecutive year, raising more than $10,000 in support of New Directions and combatting homeless among veterans in the Los Angeles community.
Los Angeles has the largest population of homeless veterans in the nation. At a time when homeless populations are increasing, the city saw a 30 percent drop in the number of homeless veterans from 4,362 in 2015 to 3,071 earlier this year. It’s organizations such as New Directions for Veterans that create this impact, providing programs and services to help veterans get their lives back.
