You can help provide homes for our troops

When duty called, our veterans answered. Now it’s our turn.

Donate to Homes For Our Troops

More than 1,000 severely injured veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan need adapted housing — and the need is urgent.

An amputated limb, partial paralysis or a traumatic brain injury can turn everyday tasks — like cooking a meal or bathing a child — into daunting challenges. But a specially designed home can restore some of the freedom and independence our veterans sacrificed.

That’s why Local 49 is proud to put on the first-ever Local 49 Golf Classic to Benefit Homes For Our Troops on Monday, July 18. Golf is full, and thanks to our generous sponsors, we’ve already raised about $250,000.

Our goal is $300,000, and we’re asking members to help with any size donation they can afford — every penny will go to Homes For Our Troops, a nationally recognized nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes for severely injured post-9/11 veterans.

Want to help? Visit and use your credit or debit card to give what you can. In order to donate, you’ll be asked to sign in — simply create an account using your email address, or sign in with your Facebook or Google account.

Thank you for supporting those who sacrificed so much for us.
