Delmar International Inc. Paid Tribute to Military Families at the Islanders Game Commemorating Remembrance and Veterans Day
Montreal, November 17, 2023-- Delmar International Inc. (www.delmarcargo.com), a global leader in logistics and supply chain solutions, continues to strengthen its commitment in supporting US military communities with the New York Islanders.
With offices in 17 countries, Delmar International has a long history of supporting professional sports teams and events, which include the LPGA and the NHL to name a few. Delmar also has a long history of supporting local communities. Delmar formalized a Social Commitment pillar to ensure these values permeate throughout its growing global organization many years ago.
As a 3rd year returning official sponsor of the NHL’s New York Islanders for the 2023-2024 season, Delmar ensured their agreement allowed for a joint opportunity for both organizations to give back to organizations and communities whose missions and values are aligned.
On November 11, 2023, the Islanders played the Washington Capitals at home at the UBS Arena on Military Appreciation Night. Delmar donated 40 tickets to the game to the Wounded Warriors Project, a non-profit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Service members and their families had an opportunity to come together, support their local professional hockey team and have fun, while being celebrated and honored during a special evening.
Former United States Marine, Frank Bello, has been the President of Delmar USA since 2015. “As a veteran myself, I knew about the Wounded Warrior Project organization and the good work that they do to honor military sacrifices and helping injured veterans heal.”
“At Delmar, we believe in the importance of giving back and we hope that this event brings joy and excitement to those that attended the game. Our commitment to supporting local initiatives and organizations remains steadfast and we look forward to continuing our efforts in making a positive impact," said Frank Bello.
