More Than $32,000 Raised During “Counters For A Cause”

December 23, 2013

Artisan Group countertop fabricators across America raised more than $32,000 at the group’s third national granite yard sale, "Counters For A Cause," to help Homes for Our Troops build specially adapted homes for veterans. Homeowners were able to purchase stone remnants and slabs at discounted prices and help a veteran at the same time.

“Giving back to the veterans who have sacrificed for us through our Counters For A Cause fundraiser is an honor for the Artisan Group,” said Chad Seiders, executive director, Artisan Group. “The funds help build homes for these veterans, that improve their quality of life, and we are happy to be a small part of that life-changing project.”

“For the third year, the Artisan Group has stepped up to support our nation’s heroes through Counters For A Cause,” said Major General USA, Ret. Timothy P. McHale – president and director of Homes for Our Troops. “Homes for Our Troops truly appreciates the selfless fundraising efforts of such a patriotic organization. It’s because of the support from companies like the Artisan Group throughout this country, we are able to restore freedom and independence to our severely injured veterans through the gift of a specially adapted home.”

The top fundraisers were Construction Resource in Decatur, Ga., raising more than $8,000; Duracite of Fairfield, Calif. with more than $6,000, and Eastern Surfaces in Allen town, Pa. and Rocky Mountain Stone in Albuquerque both raising nearly $3,000.
