Andersen Donates to Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded WarriorsFebruary 2nd, 2018 by Editor
Andersen Corporation is providing $75,000 in product donations to Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors. The donation provides windows and doors to build ten houses for injured United States military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Andersen has a long-standing commitment to supporting programs that provide critical housing support to individuals and families in communities where we live and work,” said Jay Lund, Andersen chair and CEO. “The Andersen team is pleased to partner with Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors to help improve the lives of veterans who sustained life-changing injuries while serving our country.”
Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors serves wounded United States military veterans who sustained a physical injury or wounds during their military service in Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom, making it challenging for them to comfortably get around in the privacy of their homes. The organization raises money to build or remodel homes for critically wounded United States military veterans making them 100-percent handicap accessible specific to their injuries.
“On behalf of myself and my foundation, Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors, I want to thank Andersen for its support and commitment to helping us build homes for our injured US military veterans,” said Allen, a former pro football star. “We are happy to start off 2018 with this new relationship between our organizations and look forward to working with the Andersen team throughout the year to complete the home builds for these veterans.”
The public is welcome to meet Allen on Saturday, February 3, from 1 – 2 p.m. at the KARE 11 Andersen Windows Warming House at Super Bowl Live presented by Verizon on Nicollet Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. The event is free and open to the public.
