Our Commitment to Veterans

In addition to recruiting active military, reservists and veterans, PNC is equally committed to serving veterans in the community.

In 2016 - and for the second consecutive year - PNC presented a mortgage-free home to a military veteran who was injured during combat operations. PNC made the donation to a retired U.S. army sergeant who received a Purple Heart from his deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Recognizing the value of a home donation to a wounded veteran, PNC joined Military Warriors Support Foundation's “Homes4WoundedHeroes” program to demonstrate its backing of the veteran community.

PNC Helps Nine Military Veterans Get Life-Changing Service Dogs

Thanks in part to PNC, nine more Pittsburgh-area veterans may be on the road to getting their old lives back.

On October 1, Life Changing Service Dogs for Veterans (LCSDV) held its first Community Mutt Strut, sponsored by PNC, and reached its ambitious goal of funding nine service dogs that will be matched with local recipients. LCSDV, a Pittsburgh-based organization that aims to help reduce veteran suicides, organized the event to support Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, a Florida-based nonprofit that trains and places service dogs to help veterans address anxiety, PTSD and other combat-related issues.  

The Veterans Administration estimates that 20 U.S. military veterans commit suicide every day, but those who have received a dog from Life Changing Service Dogs for Veterans and its Florida partner, Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, have a 100 percent survival rate.
