PulteGroup has launched Built to Honor to provide new homes to 20 wounded veterans and their families in 2014.
Built to Honor is PulteGroup's program for the construction and donation of mortgage-free homes to returning military personnel who have been injured during their term of service. The program works in partnership with Operation Finally Home, a nonpartisan/nonprofit organization that identifies veteran candidates, and helps bring together builders, contractors, manufacturers and sponsors throughout the country.
"We at PulteGroup are forever grateful for the countless sacrifices our service men, women and their families have made defending our freedom," said Richard J. Dugas Jr., PulteGroup chairman, president and CEO. "We've long been in business to make lives better, and thanks to our size, expertise and trade partnerships, we can help make a difference for our nation's veterans by simply doing what we do best ... building homes."
In 2013, PulteGroup constructed nine homes under its Built to Honor program for delivery to wounded veterans and their families in its Pulte Homes and Centex branded communities in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, South Carolina and Texas. In 2014, the home double will more than double its effort to provide more than $6 million worth of new homes.
"We at Operation Finally Home are humbled by the continued support and generosity of the PulteGroup," said Russell Carroll, Executive Director of Operation Finally Home. "PulteGroup's commitment to provide 20 wounded veterans and their families with homes in the coming year is a true testament to their strong belief in supporting America's veterans."
