Homes for Our Troops – The Story in Pictures
Armstrong has partnered with Homes for our Troops (HFOT), a national nonprofit, non-partisan organization that builds specially adapted homes for the nation’s severely injured veterans.
As the exclusive flooring supplier to HFOT, we are donating floors for approximately 30 homes to be built across the country in 2013. The houses are built at no cost to the veteran through the support of individuals, foundations, and corporate contributors.
A portion of the sales from our new American Scrape hardwood flooring collection will be dedicated to supporting this effort. Armstrong products donated through the sponsorship include Alterna luxury vinyl, with a textured, smooth surface for slip resistance and warmth underfoot, and the Beckford Plank hardwood collection.
The homes include many products that help the veterans participate in and enjoy daily life with their families. Each house is designed to provide maximum freedom of movement for the injured veteran, as well as enhancing the ability to live more independently.
Here are a few of the photos from a recent build at the new home of Cpl. Tony Mullis, USMC.
Check back in the coming months as we post more photos from upcoming HFOT builds.
