Special Thanks to our Top Sponsors
Top Financial Donor Advance Auto Parts Has Now Donated Nearly $14 Million to Building Homes for Heroes®
In 2020, Building Homes for Heroes was honored to begin a partnership with Lowe’s to support our mission to gift and modify 500 homes by 2025 for our nation’s injured veterans, plus so much more. During the COVID-19 crisis, Lowe’s also has joined Building Homes for Heroes in our effort to supply emergency funding relief checks to veterans and their families who are experiencing financial distress due to the pandemic. We are so grateful for Lowe’s generosity and look forward to a long partnership ahead!
MOORESVILLE, N.C., Nov. 1, 2022 — For the second year, this Veterans Day, Lowe’s is calling upon consumers everywhere to #BuildThanks and show appreciation for military neighbors with a simple gesture – adorning their doors with a blue wreath.
Known as a universal symbol of welcome, wreaths adorn millions of front doors across America each year. Now, Lowe’s invites consumers to add one more important wreath to their seasonal celebrations by DYI-ing their own design with supplies from the Lowe’s blue wreath project collection, shoppable at Lowes.com/BlueWreathProject
Continuing to show appreciation for the military community, Lowe’s will donate $1, up to $50,000, for every purchase from the online collection to the military nonprofit organization Building Homes for Heroes.
One of the most important moments in the history of Building Homes for Heroes® came about in 2012 when it was selected to be a partner in JPMorgan Chase’s Home Ownership Assistance program. Chase has pledged to gift 1,000 homes to veterans over a five-year period through its non-profit partners. It has also provided numerous financial donations, and is a major sponsor at nearly all Building Homes for Heroes® events.
Building Homes for Heroes is extremely thankful to Truck Hero for their generous support. Their donations will contribute to several mortgage-free home gifts for our nation’s severely injured veterans. Together, we are building homes and rebuilding lives, while making our communities and country a better place.
Truck Hero, one of the nation’s premiere truck accessories companies, has quickly become one of Building Homes for Heroes’ biggest supporters. Introduced to Building Homes for Heroes in 2017 through longtime supporter Ray Daigle, Truck Hero has contributed nearly a quarter of a million dollars between donations and sponsorships to our nation’s veterans in less than a year. The company recently invited Building Homes for Heroes to participate in their annual picnic, where they honored veterans and Building Homes for Heroes home recipients Army Sergeant Joel Tavera and USMC Sergeant Greg Caron.
Through this sponsorship, Johnson Controls, along with its distributors and contractors nationwide, will be donating heating and cooling systems, including installation and labor costs to military families. These donations will assist in the completion of homes being renovated or built from the ground up.
