Artisan Group’s nationwide sale, which Duracite Custom Countertops proudly participated in, raised $32,000 for the charity Homes for Our Troops. The charity builds specially adapted homes to help wounded veterans. Pictured above you will see Artisan Group’s, Chad Seiders presenting the $32,000 donation to Marine Corporal Neil Frustaglio. Neil is a Homes for our Troops Representative and Marine who recently received a home from the charity.
“These marines have given their blood, sweat, tears and in some cases part of themselves to defend our rights and freedoms in this country,” says Chad Seiders, Artisan Group Executive Director. “It is a privilege to give something back to them.”
“Homes for Our Troops appreciates the fundraising efforts of the Artisan Group,” says John Gonsalves, President and Founder of Homes For Our Troops. “Because of the support from patriotic companies across the nation, we are able to restore freedom and independence back to our severely injured veterans through the gift of a specially adapted home.”
