Roseville, Calif., April 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PRIDE Industries, the nation’s leading employer of people with disabilities, has been named a DAV Patriot Employer. The DAV (Disabled American Veterans) grants this honor to partner organizations that support its crucial mission of securing meaningful employment for military veterans, particularly those with disabilities.
