Tis The Season Not to Forget Continued

Posted on: December 21, 2012

There is one other outstanding organization I wanted to recommend in case you are looking for a place to help out this holiday season and that is Homes for our Troops. Homes for Our Troops uses your donations and your volunteered time to build specially adapted homes for our severely injured veterans. Now that veterans are returning from the battlefield with severe injuries, many need a place to live. Donating to Homes for our Troops helps provide wounded soldiers with new, accessible living spaces all around the country.

In 2011 I volunteered my time on a Homes for our Troops build. I am not a skilled carpenter or laborer, but that didn’t matter. I helped lift packs of shingles up to the roofing company that volunteered its time to put a new roof on a new house for a former marine. I carried lumber and helped straighten up the work site. There was always something to do. To donate or volunteer all you have to do is to visit Homes for our Troops and click on the Donate button. Or sign up to help with a Home in Progress. It is a great opportunity to show your support for those who have sacrificed for our country.
