According to Harvey Building Products CEO Jim Barreira, “Supporting Homes For Our Troops is just one of the ways we can pay tribute to the brave men and women who have served our country.” This cause is very near and dear to Harvey. We are tremendously thankful to all Harvey employees and customers who supported us in past years and are looking forward to joining forces again this year and beating last year’s donation total!
Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization building specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of these Veterans have sustained life-altering injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. Since its founding in 2004, over 90 cents out of every $1 (dollar) donated to HFOT has gone directly to Veterans in its program. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.
