The Boeing Company has announced a $3 million, multi-year investment to help support Homes For Our Troops in its mission to build and donate specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post- 9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives.
Boeing’s contribution to Homes For Our Troops will support build projects for deserving Veterans slated for completion throughout the country over a three-year investment period. Currently, Homes For Our Troops has 81 projects in various phases of development with an additional 96 Veterans in the application process.
“This investment from Boeing will significantly enhance our organization’s abilities to build homes,” says General (Ret.) Richard Cody, Chairman of the Board, Homes For Our Troops. “More importantly, this support will transform lives, making daily living easier and safer for our injured warfighters, their caregivers, and families.”
Boeing Global Engagement approaches its global community investments and employee engagement activities by supporting three key focus areas that shape and impact the communities where their employees live and work. With a special emphasis on military Veterans and their families, Boeing has contributed nearly $50 million dollars to military and Veteran causes across the country in the past two years alone.
