Haselden Construction recently presented $100,838 to the national nonprofit Homes For Our Troops (HFOT), which builds and donates specially adapted custom homes for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. The funds were raised at Haselden’s 8th annual clay target shoot for HFOT on June 3rd, bringing the total raised over the last eight years for the organization to more than $710,000.
Since its inception in 2004, HFOT has built 332 homes in 42 states for Veterans in the communities where they live and work. Each home is equipped with over 40 special adaptations and exceeds ADA compliancy standards, helping to restore some of their freedom and independence.
“In the business of building, it’s incredibly rewarding to be helping our country’s Veterans build homes and their lives,” said Byron Haselden, president and CEO of Haselden Construction. “Haselden was founded by my father, Jim Haselden, who is a Veteran himself, so it’s personally significant to have our team and partners come together to help Homes For Our Troops and these individuals make meaningful lives for themselves and their families.”
Haselden Construction’s longstanding dedication and efforts resulted in its 2021 ranking as the third largest fundraiser in the country, thanks to the unwavering support of our subcontracting community, team members and friends. Even faced with supply chain and inflation challenges in 2022, over 230 shooters and 40 volunteers showed their commitment to the mission of HFOT by participating in this year’s event.
“We are incredibly grateful for Haselden Construction, and their continued support over the past eight years. We can only build homes and rebuild lives because of Patriotic supporters like them, and their dedication and commitment to our Veterans is unwavering,” says HFOT President/CEO Brigadier General, USA (Ret) Tom Landwermeyer.
