Homes For Our Troops will be spotlighted during the 106th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Sunday, May 29, 2022. HFOT’s Platinum Partner, ABC Supply, gifted the design of #11 Foyt Racing Chevrolet to help bring awareness to HFOT’s mission of building and donating specially adapted custom homes for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. ABC Supply will also match all donations made to HFOT – up to $1 million total – from Saturday, May 21, through Monday, May 30.
The car’s stars and stripes design celebrates American pride and prominently features the HFOT mission of Building Homes, Rebuilding Lives.
“We are thrilled ABC Supply is choosing to spotlight Homes For Our Troops through this initiative,” says HFOT President and CEO Tom Landwermeyer. “In addition to generating revenue, it will raise much needed awareness about our mission. ABC Supply has been a tremendous partner and we are grateful for their commitment to our mission of Building Homes and Rebuilding Lives.”
ABC Supply, the nation’s largest wholesale distributor of roofing, siding and other select exterior building products, has been a multimillion-dollar supporter of HFOT since 2020.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be back at the Indy 500 with AJ Foyt Racing and raise awareness for our friends at Homes For Our Troops,” says Mike Jost, chief operating officer of ABC Supply. “HFOT is an incredible organization and we’re honored to play a part in bringing more attention to the great work they do.”
“I think the fans will love it, and I think the fans will be so happy to see the American flag — especially with our team,” says A.J. Foyt. “I would like to thank ABC Supply for supporting Homes For Our Troops. It’s great.”
“To support this organization at the Speedway, bring attention to Veterans and some of the challenges that they face, and highlight the things that people and organizations like Homes For Our Troops are doing to give them opportunities to better their lives is such a special thing to be able to be a part of,” says J.R. Hildebrand, driver of the No. 11 car.
