OneMain Financial Announces Partnership With Operation Gratitude

Company Release - 11/5/2018 8:30 AM ET

Company Will Host Nationwide Collection Drive and Award $20,000 Grant

EVANSVILLE, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- OneMain Financial announced today its partnership with Operation Gratitude, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to meeting the evolving needs of the U.S. military and first responder communities. As part of this partnership, OneMain Financial will host a company-wide collection drive in its 1,600+ branches across the country and has pledged $20,000 to the organization.

“With so many branches throughout the country, we have seen firsthand the struggles that servicemen, servicewomen and their families too often face,” said OneMain Financial Chief Marketing Officer Kim Wijkstrom. “Operation Gratitude is doing important work to alleviate some of these pressures, and we’re honored to have the opportunity to help.”

The collection drive will run throughout the month of November, allowing customers and team members the opportunity to drop off hand warmers, lip balm, travel-size deodorant, travel-size body and hand wipes, and black crew socks. All items must be new and sealed. Every item received in the collection drive will be shipped in care packages to deployed troops, first responders, veterans and military families.

As a way of continuing its support, OneMain has awarded a $20,000 grant to Operation Gratitude. The grant will be used to further the organization’s mission of lifting the spirits of the men and women who serve our nation as well as providing opportunities for fellow Americans to express their gratitude to our servicemen and servicewomen.

"We are thankful for the passion and dedication of the thousands of Operation Gratitude volunteers around the country, including the employees of OneMain Financial, who contribute to our mission of thanking all who serve,” said Kevin Schmiegel, CEO of Operation Gratitude. “Together, we are helping bridge the divide that exists between those who serve in uniform and grateful Americans everywhere who want to express their support.”

If interested in participating in the collection drive or learning more about this initiative, please visit your local OneMain Financial branch or visit www.onemainfinancial.com to find a branch near you.
