Houston, TX (August 26, 2019) –Homes For Our Troops, one of the nation’s top-rated Veterans and Military charities, announced today that Patriot Coolers, the #1 rated Cooler Brand in the USA, presented the organization with a check on Friday, August 23, 2019, for $60,000 at the company’s headquarters in Houston, Texas for the construction of a specially adapted custom home for severely injured Veteran, Army SFC Henry Escobedo.
Homes For Our Troops is an organization dedicated to building and donating specially adapted custom homes, nationwide, for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, enabling them to rebuild their lives. The organization relies on the support of exceptional companies such as Patriot Coolers to restore freedom and independence to Service Members who have returned home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with life-altering injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and severe traumatic brain injuries.
“We are excited to continue our sponsorship of Homes For Our Troops on a much larger scale as one of the organizations Regional Partners,” states Peter Hirsch, co-founder of Patriot Coolers. “When my son Paul and I first started the company, we were determined to create positive change in the lives of fellow Americans and have committed 20% of the net proceeds from our outdoor lifestyle brand, Patriot Coolers, drinkware, and cooler sales, since the companies opening in 2017. In our hearts and minds, it’s the least that we can do for the heroes who have given so much for this great country.”
“This generous donation from Patriot Coolers will significantly enhance our ability to assist more Veterans and their families nationwide,” states Bill Ivey, Executive Director of HFOT. “We are incredibly grateful to the company and its team for their generosity and their commitment to making a difference in the lives of these brave men and women.”
