Coast Guard Veteran and Family to Move In

Donating a house to a wounded service member has been a personal dream of mine. And now, with the help of Hope For The Warriors®, this dream has become a reality.

Hope For The Warriors® (http://www.hopeforthewarriors.org) will be joined by corporate leaders, nonprofit organizations and elected officials at the groundbreaking of a home in Brick, New Jersey at 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 14, 2013. The ground breaking will take place at the future home of an Iraq War hero and 9/11 First Responder: 294 Sky Manor Blvd., Brick, NJ 08723. The home will be renovated and donated to Chief Petty Officer Colin Redy, USCG (Ret.) and his family. Hope For The Warriors® is a national nonprofit organization that assists post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.

Bank President Thomas Coughlin shared, "Donating a house to a wounded service member has been a personal dream of mine. And now, with the help of Hope For The Warriors®, this dream has become a reality."

BCB Community Bank approached Hope For The Warriors® to identify a military family that would benefit from a mortgage-free home. Hope For The Warriors® assists wounded service members and veterans from all military branches across the country. Through their work with military families and their relationships with VA Hospitals and caseworkers, they identified a wounded service member and family in the area.

The needs of the family were reviewed and it was determined that the home required renovations to suit this family of six. To complete this project, support has also been given by Highland Associates, Plaza Construction, Heart 9/11 with help from Laborers Local 79 - New York City, Network Contracting, Deutsch Electric, Allied Trade Contracting, McKenna Construction and Eastern Shore Mechanical.
