Progress Lighting Becomes Official Lighting Partner of Homes For Our Troops
Progress Lighting continues its commitment to supporting U.S. military Veterans by becoming the lighting sponsor of Homes For Our Troops.
Homes For Our Troops is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds mortgage-free, specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured Veterans Post – 9/11, 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. 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 of every dollar has gone directly to program services for Veterans. Homes For Our Troops 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.
Homes For Our Troops has handed over the keys to more than 225 home build projects. Future homes will include a full lighting package from Progress Lighting.
“On behalf of Progress Lighting and all of our Veteran employees, we are honored and excited to continue to partner with Homes For Our Troops,” said Jennifer Kis, director of marketing communications for Progress Lighting.
According to Kis, becoming Homes For Our Troops’ official lighting sponsor is just another way Progress Lighting is demonstrating its commitment to investing in our communities across the nation.
