Through their shared commitment to empowering New England communities and honoring military members and their families, Harvard Pilgrim, in partnership with the Patriots Foundation, will donate $50,000 to Homes For Our Troops at the finish line of the July 3rd races to support the nonprofit’s project to build a specially adapted custom home for a military veteran in the Merrimack Valley area of Massachusetts.
Additionally, Patriot Place will donate a portion from each race entry to support Homes For Our Troops.
ABOUT HOMES FOR OUR TROOPS
Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a publicly funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post – 9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. Most of these Veterans have sustained 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. Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents out of every dollar spent has gone directly to our program services for Veterans. 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.
