Organization Connects Veterans with Local Resources as They Transition to Civilian Life
On Saturday, March 25, the Charlie-Mike Foundation (CMF), the non-profit organization established to connect veterans with skilled local resources as they transition to civilian life, hosted its Adopt-A-Highway cleanup volunteer event in partnership with the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT). Local veterans and volunteers from CMF as well as representatives from other local businesses and organizations, including Executive Option, the Nevada Army National Guard and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ ROTC program, cleaned up U.S. 95 northbound at mileposts 46 and 48, just south of Boulder City, Nevada.
The cleanup event was held to raise awareness of the organization’s mission of supporting veterans as well as its overall commitment to the Southern Nevada community.
ABOUT THE CHARLIE-MIKE FOUNDATION
Charlie-Mike Foundation connects veterans with skilled local resources committed to creating a personalized path for the successful transition as they embark on their next mission. The organization was founded by Mike Del Prado, a U.S. veteran and chief executive officer of Henderson-based Executive Option, a business consulting firm specializing in enterprise project management and recovery. “Charlie-Mike” is the military code phrase for “continue mission,” or pushing through adversity no matter the difficulties. CMF offers veterans access to trained career mentors, personal and family-oriented career plans driven by the veteran’s health, financial and individualized needs, as well as ongoing and long-term career support and resources. Interested veterans can sign up for CMF’s services here.
