In recognition of Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2019, Patriot Coolers, the #1 rated Cooler Brand in the USA, would like to take this opportunity to share some of the overwhelmingly positive survey results published by Homes for Our Troops, one of the nation’s top-rated Veterans and Military charities outlining the organization’s impact in the lives of our nation’s most severely injured veterans and their spouses/caregivers.
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.
By the Numbers:
82% of the Veterans who have been awarded a custom-designed home from Homes for Our Troops say they can now heal in a SAFE ENVIRONMENT.
While 91% of these same awardees can regain some/much of their FREEDOM & INDEPENDENCE.
These same Veterans are also eager to pursue higher degrees or trade certifications as part of their improved abilities. Over 69% of Veterans and over 90% of spouses/caregivers get a degree or advanced certification; up drastically from 12% of Veterans and only 8% of spouses/caregivers prior to being awarded a HFOT home.
57% of Veterans taking part in the HFOT program increased their family’s savings making their productive members of the community while 67% of participants became more involved in their community, paying it forward for generations to come.
Earlier this year, Patriot Coolers were selected as one of the nonprofit’s Regional Partners. The premium outdoor living product company has committed 20% of the company’s net proceeds from all drinkware and cooler sales to the nonprofit organizations, Homes for Our Troops, making it possible to give back to U.S. Military Veterans across the country with every purchase.
About Homes For Our Troops (HOFT)
Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a publicly funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide to severely injured post-9/11 Veterans. Most of these Veterans have sustained life-altering injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives. Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar spent has gone directly to our program services supporting Veterans. For more information, visit www.hfotusa.org.
