Dallas — This holiday season, Operation FINALLY HOME, a nonprofit organization that provides custom-built, mortgage-free homes for wounded, ill and injured veterans and surviving spouses across the country, recently launched their inaugural ‘Homes for the Holidays’ campaign to increase year-end donations for homes being built in 2015.
Now through December 31, Operation FINALLY HOME aims to raise at least $250,000 in general building funds in support of the 70 families waiting for homes next year. In addition to the objectives set forth for 2015, the campaign is also focusing on the organization’s principal goal to build 100 homes annually by 2018.
“We are more than grateful for the tremendous amount of generosity we have received from donors across the country since day one,” said Rusty Carroll, executive director of Operation FINALLY HOME. “With thousands of other wounded veterans in need of our support, we anticipate that this campaign will help us touch the lives of even more veterans and ultimately position us to accomplish our vision of building 100 homes annually.”
To date, Operation FINALLY HOME, with the support of builder associations, corporate sponsors, homebuilders, developers, individual contributors and volunteers, has completed or is in various planning stages for 135 homes across 26 states.
“Since 2005, Operation FINALLY HOME has come a very long way and there is still so much more to accomplish,” said Carroll. “We cannot help all of the wounded veterans returning home from the recent wars, but we are making every effort to give back to as many as we can.”
