Armstrong Partners with Homes For Our Troops

December 17, 2012

Armstrong Floor Products is partnering with Homes for Our Troops (HFOT), a national nonprofit, non-partisan organization that builds specially adapted homes for the nation’s severely injured veterans.

Armstrong will donate 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.

“We are proud that we can play a small role in helping these injured veterans live more comfortably in their new homes, although ‘proud’ does not begin to describe how we feel about the opportunity to help return freedom and independence to a few of our nation’s most severely wounded service members,” said Kevin Biedermann, Armstrong senior VP.

“We hope that our participation will bring attention to this worthy organization, as the opportunity and need are great,” said Biedermann. “In addition to our commitment as a company, we are encouraging our distributor partners and retail customers to get involved, too. The more volunteers and donations that Homes For Our Troops receives, the more veterans they can help.”

“It is only with continued support from sponsors like Armstrong that together, we can help more severely injured veterans eliminate the daily obstacles and barriers that their physical limitations impose upon them and their families,” said SMA Kenneth Preston, president and director, Homes For Our Troops. “Every donation of time, labor, materials and money, helps us to fulfill our commitment to our service members who have been severely injured in combat operations.”

Products donated through the sponsorship include engineered hardwood and resilient floors that meet Universally Design criteria, including Armstrong’s Alterna engineered stone tile. The homes include many products that help the veterans participate in and enjoy daily life with their families and are designed to provide the ability to live more independently after returning injured from service.
