Building Homes For Heroes

In the tradition of "barn raising" where communities come together to build a barn for the member of the community, Hobbs, Incorporated is working alongside Building Homes for Heroes and the community of Ellington, CT with the guidance Nordic Builders of Tolland to build a home for USMC Sergeant Greg Caron in Ellington, CT.

Building Homes for Heroes is a national non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2006. Their mission statement reads as follows:

We provide individuals, corporations and others with an opportunity to help our severely wounded and disabled veterans and their families rebuild their lives. Building Homes for Heroes is committed to supporting those who have returned home from the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan with severe wounds and disabilities, with a goal to build homes for families in dire need. It's our honor to support those who have been called upon to make a tremendous personal sacrifice. Read more about Building Homes For Heroes at www.buildinghomesforheroes.com

Hobbs, Incorporated has a long standing reputation for community service which includes international initiatives. Two project managers from Hobbs (Jerry and Toni) have reached out to Hobbs' extensive subcontracting community and found overwhelming support. The building and construction industry has a long reputation of patriotism. Staff at Hobbs, Incorporated and their subcontractors are no exception. So far, they've collected funds, a gas fireplace, all bath plumbing fixtures, roofing materials, garage doors, door hardware, ceramic tile and have commitments for more including windows, exterior doors and cabinetry. In additional to material donations, Hobbs, Incorporated hoped to provide Nordic with labor to help build the house. The project has broken ground and concrete is being poured.

It is exciting to work alongside another builder and hear what they were able to source through the community in Ellington. Support of Sergeant Caron is widespread in his hometown. Hobbs, Incorporated is grateful for the opportunity to extend their support from Fairfield County. If you would like to be a part of this "barn raising" contact Jerry or Toni at Hobbs, Incorporated - Phone (203) 966-0726.
