As you may be aware, Rebuilding Together and Sears Holdings have for combined forces to assist veterans and military families in need with free home repairs and modifications through the Heroes at Home program. I am hoping you can let these heroes in need know that help is available and direct them to their local Rebuilding Together affiliate.
We are actively seeking more veterans to assist. The program is open to low-income and disabled veterans of various military backgrounds, military widows and active duty military families. We are writing today because we need your help in spreading the word about our services.
Please ask veterans in need to contact their nearest Rebuilding Together affiliate as soon as possible. Affiliates can be easily found at http://www.rebuildingtogether.org/content/organization/map
Since the inception of Heroes at Home in 2007, we have completed nearly 300 projects across the country with a combined market value of over 3.8 million dollars. In 2009, we plan to complete hundreds more projects and we need your help to find more veterans who need assistance.
If you would like to learn more about our program, or if you have a veteran to recommend for our services, please contact any one of Rebuilding Together's Veterans Housing team,
Vanessa Georgeson mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org ,
