I wanted to tell you folks about an outstanding charity—Homes for Our Troops, a non-profit organization which adapts and builds new homes for severely injured Servicemen and women and their families. This organization has had a positive impact locally and is certainly worth a look. Homes for Our Troops helped to purchase and retrofit a home in Dale City, VA for SSG Eugene Simpson, who was paralyzed from the waist down after an IED exploded near his vehicle in Tikrit, Iraq. Homes for Our Troops helps those brave men and women who have so selflessly given to their country.
If you’re thinking about making a donation this holiday season but can’t quite decide on a charity, please consider Homes for Our Troops. Not only is the mission of this organization a noble one, but it has a leadership team who ensures that each dollar is used judiciously. This fiscal year, costs for administration and fundraising were just 7% of donations.
