What better way to thank the men and women who have served our country than welcoming them to a mortgage-free, specially adapted home for them and their families. Homes For Our Troops has been building these homes nationwide for our severely injured veterans since September 11, 2001.
Thank you to each of our 349 participants! The Donate In My Name program resulted in Wilson & Company’s yearly donation being sent to four charities:
- Homes For Our Troops – 40.1%
- The American Cancer Society – 34.7%
- The National Multiple Sclerosis Society – 17.5%
- The ALS Association – 7.7%
A special thanks to each of you who voted. Your heartfelt comments about these charities are always an inspiration.
“A huge thanks to those that serve and have served this country, may these homes give them someplace safe.”
“I know cancer affects many families; ours has been affected approximately 8 times over the course of 7 years.”
“My wife has been living with MS for ten years, and the research that [National Multiple Sclerosis Society] has been doing has made it more manageable. Thank you for doing this program.”
“Thank you so much.... My mother passed away due to ALS.”
Your stories and courage spur us on to continue this journey each year and join these charities in their efforts to make sure every injured veteran has a place to call home; to find the cure for cancer; to shape a vision and a world free of MS; and to build hope while aggressively searching for new treatments and a cure for ALS.
The holiday season brings us an opportunity to pause our busy lives and look at those around us. Our acquaintances, friends, and those we love dearly shape who we are and the work we do. Wilson & Company is a part of our community, and we know that this program is more than percentages and numbers on a page. May we find every opportunity to support those around us all year long.
