Batteries Plus has teamed up with USA Cares, a 501(c)(3) organization that helps post-9/11 military service members, veterans and their families with basic financial needs.

From now until Memorial Day, participating Batteries Plus locations across the nation will donate $5 from each regular or lifetime watch battery replacement to USA Cares and accept “In-Kind” donations. The company also will be contributing $1 for every person who “likes” the Batteries Plus Facebook page and “supports” the USA Cares Jobs for Vets Cause page – up to $25,000.

USA Cares, founded in 2003, helps bear the burdens of service by providing military families and veterans with financial and advocacy support in their time of need. They have helped families in all 50 states and have received more than 27,000 requests for assistance.

Batteries Plus will hold the event again Nov. 5–11 in honor of Veterans Day.
