Construction Resources, Inc. of Decatur, Ga. was proud to represent the Artisan Group at a groundbreaking ceremony hosted by the Homes for Our Troops charity on Saturday, December 15 in Hawkinsville, Ga. As the largest contributor to the annual donation from the Counters for a Cause sales event; with $7,793, Construction Resources, Inc. owners Mitch and Sonny Hires were honored to present the check to Corporal Tony Mullis, the soldier whose home the funds will directly benefit, at the groundbreaking event.
“Men like Corporal Mullis give their all, and they deserve all the help we can give them,” says Construction Resources co-president Sonny Hires. “Corporal Mullis is a hero; and his humility and sacrifice deserve our respect, and as part of the Artisan Group, we couldn’t be happier to offer this donation to ease Corporal Mullis in his return to civilian life.”
The Counters for a Cause Sale, a national effort for Artisan Group members of countertop suppliers and fabricators, collected a portion of the proceeds from every sale on home improvement materials from participants to fund the donation. This year, the Construction Resources family of companies raised a record amount, and over a quarter of the total donation value.
The proceeds aid The Homes for Our Troops charity, which helps renovate and construct homes specifically modified to provide wounded veterans with freedom of movement and independence from their injuries. The modifications are custom-tailored to the veteran’s injuries, and each job presents unique challenges and opportunities to better the life of someone who sacrificed for America.
