Always an advocate for our country’s veterans and soldiers, NFM, Inc. recently participated in supporting Habitat for Humanity of Maryland’s newest initiative, Homes and Hope for Heroes. On July 18, 2012 Susan Devlin, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Maryland, was presented with a check in the amount of $12,800.00 at our corporate office location in Linthicum, Maryland.
Homes and Hope for Heroes is a new program developed by Habitat for Humanity of Maryland based on Habitat for Humanity International’s Veteran’s Initiative. The Veteran’s Initiative focuses on affordable housing and home preservation, volunteer mobilization, employment, education, and celebration of United States veterans. Through these five areas of focus, Homes and Hope for Heroes is developing a program of sustainable housing solutions for Maryland veterans.
Aware of our continuing work with Any Soldier, Inc., Habitat for Humanity of Massachusetts, and our recent green office initiative, Habitat for Humanity of Maryland contacted NFM, Inc. with a proposal for this initiative. Excited to be part of a program that combines a variety of NFM, Inc.’s passions, David Silverman, President and CEO of NFM, Inc. was eager to make a donation:
“NFM, Inc. is delighted to become a partner with the Habitat for Humanity of Maryland’s Homes and Hope for Heroes Program. As a company, NFM, Inc. is dedicated to giving back to our community. Habitat for Humanity of Maryland and the Homes and Hope for Heroes program not only allows for us to help build homes for individuals in our community but it also allows us to show our gratitude to our veterans and their families. They sacrifice their lives for our freedom and safety—it’s the least we can do to honor their service. I personally would like to thank Habitat for Humanity of Maryland for allowing NFM, Inc. to become a partner in their new Homes and Hope for Heroes program; we are excited to get involved with such a great organization.”
NFM, Inc. is looking forward to many more opportunities to participate with Homes and Hope for Heroes as they continue to grow.
