Harvey Building Products Raises $30,000 to Benefit Homes for Our TroopsJanuary 24th, 2014 | Category: Industry News
Harvey Building Products is proud to tip its collective hat to veterans by selling knit hats, then donating a check for 100 percent of the proceeds—more than $30,000—to Homes for Our Troops (HFOT), an organization the company has supported since 2009.
Employees and customers made monetary donations to the national organization during a three-week blitz in November throughout the manufacturing company’s 36 branches, facilities and corporate office locations. In return for donations of $10 or more, donors received a Harvey/HFOT knit winter hat. Harvey Building Products’ Hyannis branch was the top fundraiser, bringing in $3,400 through very generous customers eager to support Homes for Our Troops.
“Homes for Our Troops is a cause very near and dear to Harvey Building Products,” says Jim Barreira, president of Harvey Building Products. “The outpouring of support from our customers and employees was tremendous, and we are thankful to everyone who gave to this important organization. Supporting Homes for Our Troops is just one way we can pay tribute to the brave men and women who have served our country.”
To date, the Homes for Our Troops mission has resulted in 157 homes built for severely injured veterans—at zero cost to them. Currently, there are 21 homes in progress for veterans supported by Homes for Our Troops; to find out how you can help, visit www.hfotusa.org.
