Chase donates truck to help furnish living space for homeless vets

- United for Change will use 2010 pickup to transport donated items

PHOENIX--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--The Chase volunteers were there to serve meals to homeless
veterans. Then, somewhere between dinner and dessert, they heard about a bigger need at United for Change. And
they passed it up the corporate chain.

As a result, Chase today donated a 2010 Nissan Titan truck to the Arizona charity that helps homeless and
struggling veterans into permanent housing. The truck, wrapped in patriotic colors, will be used to transport donated
items that furnish veterans’ new living quarters.

“Honoring those who served our country is very important to Chase,” said Sandy Broderick, the Chase Auto
Finance executive, who gave the green light to the truck donation. “This is a terrific example of how a group of
employees with a good idea can make a big difference.” 

“We are beyond excited that Chase is giving United for Change a nearly brand new vehicle so we can better assist
our struggling veterans as they transition into permanent housing,” said Barbara Sesate, founder and president of
United for Change, which has helped more than 100 Valley veterans into permanent housing. “Never underestimate
the power of a group of dedicated volunteers.” 

The employees are members of VETS, Voices for Employees That Served, a Chase-sponsored networking group
for employees with military backgrounds or those who support veterans’ issues.

United for Change operates the Veterans for Veterans store, where retired military in need can select donated items.
They also organize dinners at Victory Place, where the Chase group uncovered the need for a vehicle.

“It is terrific to work closely with employees who have also served our country – and to be part of Chase’s many
programs supporting military and veterans,” said Chase’s Alex Silloway, a U.S. Navy veteran who serves on
JPMorgan Chase’s global Veterans Council.
