Troop Support Program

Dominion has been a longtime supporter of American troops serving abroad, including Dominion employees or family members in the National Guard or Reserve.  The company’s Troop Support Program started out in 2006 as a volunteer program at Dominion Resources, Inc. in Richmond, Virginia. From 2006 to June 2012, Troop Support supported over 15 Battalions as well as the Craig Joint Theater Hospital in Afghanistan.

Due to the tremendous interest in the program from both Dominion employees and volunteers outside the company, a non-profit organization has been formed (Troop Support Program, Inc.).

The company's Troops Support and Soldier Adoption Programs have become models for others interested in holding troop support drives.
