ADVISORY, May 31, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
As we close out Fleet Week and Memorial Day 2011, Fedcap (www.fedcap.org), a non-profit celebrating 75 years of helping veterans and others overcome barriers and achieve economic independence through employment, will visit the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York City's Times Square. Fedcap was founded by three veterans with physical disabilities who struggled to make ends meet. Today, Fedcap helps thousands of veterans and many others – including people who are blind, deaf or have other longstanding mental or physical issues; those who've been in prison; youths aging out of foster care – overcome obstacles and find and keep meaningful employment.
Christine McMahon, Fedcap CEO and President, will ring the Closing Bell.
