For Sunday’s game, each T.A.P.S family will be paired with a volunteer suite holder to enjoy the game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. In addition to the initial decals honoring a fallen hero, players will also be wearing special Salute to Service warm-ups. The game will also feature many other military elements including Honorary Captain, a special guest for the train horn, flag runners to lead the lead team out of the tunnel and much more.
the overwatch fund
Launched in 2018 and administered by The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, The Overwatch Fund awards grants to nonprofit organizations supporting veterans of the U.S. Military in the state of Georgia. A select group of veterans who currently hold positions as associates across The Blank Family of Business lead The Overwatch Fund. The Fund is focused on investments, programs or policies that improve veterans’ conditions related to mental health, homelessness and successful transition from service.
In its inaugural year, grants made by The Overwatch Fund totaled $400,000.
