Hero Partners Supporting Veterans
It is impossible to carry out GallantFew mission-based services without the aid and care of our hero partners supporting veterans. Connection truly is the cure and without partners spreading the word, taking initiative and getting others involved it would be a long, lonely and arduous task. GallantFew is fortunate to have partners who care about our veterans and want to make the lives of veterans stronger, healthier and full of purpose.
American Defense Systems is a veteran-owned security company. Installing both commercial and residential security equipment and monitoring systems, ADS is an industry leader in security systems. Led my veteran Army Ranger Curtis Kindred.
Curtis says, “As a veteran owned and operated company, and having first hand experience with the transition from the military to civilian life, I, Curtis Kindred, President and Owner of American Defense Systems, and staff, truly believe in the mission of GallantFew. This is why we are so excited to have teamed up to help support the veterans that have protected our great country. GallantFew’s mission is to facilitate a peaceful, successful transition from military service to a civilian life filled with hope and purpose. Now, we ask you, can we count on you to join us on the front lines and support the transition for our returning vets?”
The American Defense Systems team is responsible for facilitating daily donations to GallantFew. They generously ask their customers to support the GallantFew mission as a part of their check out process.
“The effort and initiative by Curtis and his team is what dreams are made of. GallantFew is exceptionally proud to be the charity of choice for American Defense Systems,” says Candyss Bryant, GallantFew Development Director.
Motivated and inspired by an Army Ranger veteran, Esler Companies and their Window of Giving Program wanted to become intimately involved with GallantFew’s Run Ranger Run. The Esler Companies is the holding company for a fleet of top Renewal by Andersen (RbA) “affiliates” in Greater Philadelphia, Colorado, Greater Phoenix, and Southern New England, and a sales and marketing ‘engine’ in Northborough, Massachusetts. Independent affiliates operate with a business model which grants owners exclusive marketing and sales territories, and nearly complete autonomy in running their businesses.
The Esler Companies is unique in a multitude of ways. One example is their core value for service: Operating “With Love.” You can read more about how they operate with love here. For the Esler Companies operating with love means not worrying about the end result but making small decisions each day that are in the best interest of their teammates and customers. AMAZING!!! They truly do deliver.
The Esler Companies also turn love into action through their Windows of Giving Program. This is the program that championed GallantFew’s Run Ranger Run 2018. Esler Companies employees participated in Run Ranger Run with active enthusiasm and was responsible for raising more than $30,000 for GallantFew’s Darby Project.
The above picture is a compass awarded to The Esler Companies as a small token of our appreciation. Enscribed on the compass, “Sometimes the dimly lit compass needle is the only thing keeping us on track. Thank you for helping veterans get back on azimuth”.
