TYSONS, Va. and WASHINGTON, Jan. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- PenFed Credit Union, the nation's second largest federal credit union and The Washington Justice, the Washington D.C. area's first major professional esports team, today announced a partnership to support veterans through the PenFed Foundation. The first 2,000 people to donate $10 or more to the PenFed Foundation will receive a digital code for Origins Edition of Overwatch, redeemable for PC. The code is valued at $59.99 and the program is available here now through January 20, 2021.
"PenFed is proud to partner with The Washington Justice to support the military community," said PenFed Credit Union President/CEO and PenFed Foundation CEO James Schenck. "The military and defense community have a strong presence in the Washington region and we are excited to provide Justice fans a unique way to give back while enjoying what they love to do."
The donations will be used by the PenFed Foundation to provide members of the military community with emergency financial assistance, help veterans achieve the dream of home ownership and support investments in veteran entrepreneurs. The PenFed Foundation, a national 501(c)3 founded by PenFed Credit Union, was created in 2001 and, since then, has provided more than $38.5 million in financial support to veterans, active-duty service members, families and caregivers.
"We are grateful for the generosity of The Washington Justice and the Overwatch League fans team as we continue to support the military community during these challenging times," said PenFed Foundation President and retired U.S. Army Gen. John "Mick" Nicholson, Jr. "This timely donation will be used to further the Foundation's vision of service members being able to serve our nation free of financial worry and veterans living with a strong financial future."
The PenFed Foundation is proud to be the first national Veteran Service Organization to launch a COVID-19 Emergency Relief Program for service members and veterans -- helping over 1,100 members of the military community since March.
"A core part of our franchise's mission is to support impactful community organizations. To that end, we are thrilled to partner with the PenFed Foundation to support the brave men and women who serve in our armed forces and protect us and our country," said Mark Ein, Founder and Majority Owner of The Washington Justice. "Through this program, we look forward to providing our fan base and the greater DMV community with an opportunity to support service members, veterans, and their families during these challenging times."
PenFed is a premier sponsor of The Washington Justice, the exclusive Overwatch League franchise for the entire DMV region. During the past season The Washington Justice collaborated with PenFed to host interactive and virtual experiences alongside the Overwatch League matches during the homestand weekends.
