Our partnership with Homes for Our Troops is our opportunity to help Veterans Sergeant Steven Curry and Corporal Dandrea restore the freedom and independence they sacrificed defending ours.
Lanham, Maryland (PRWEB) May 21, 2015
Thompson Creek Window Company is proud to announce its partnership with Homes for Our Troops, a privately funded nonprofit organization that builds specially-adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans Post-9/11, to enable them to rebuild their lives.
As a Regional Partner for Homes for Our Troops, Thompson Creek is currently volunteering, donating, and installing windows and gutters on brand new homes for Army Sergeant Steven Curry in Nokesville, VA, and Marine Corporal Marcus Dandrea in Haymarket, VA. These homes are being built to restore some of the freedom and independence Sergeant Curry and Corporal Dandrea sacrificed while defending our country and enable them to focus on their families and recovery.
Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 percent of donations to Homes for Our Troops have gone directly to supporting Veterans. Despite their life-altering injuries, many of these heroes have embarked on new careers, completed their college degrees, or started families. Empowered by the freedom a mortgage-free and specially-adapted home brings, these Veterans can now focus on their recovery and returning to their life’s work of serving others.
“It is truly a humbling experience to be a part of rebuilding the lives of these brave service men”, said Thompson Creek CEO Rick Wuest. “Our partnership with Homes for Our Troops is our opportunity to help Veterans Sergeant Steven Curry and Corporal Dandrea restore the freedom and independence they sacrificed defending ours.”
During the month of May, in honor of Military Appreciation Month, Thompson Creek will also be donating a $25 for every window purchased up to $10,000 to Homes for Our Troops.

About Homes for Our Troops
Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) is a national non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2004 which supports Veterans Post-9/11 and their families by building mortgage-free, specially adapted homes nationwide. 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. 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. Since its founding in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar donated to HFOT has gone directly to our program services for Veterans. Year to date, HFOT has built 187 specially adapted homes nationwide.
