COREtec Flooring Offers Foundation for Veteran Healing
Dalton, Ga. -- COREtec announced its official partnership with Homes For Our Troops (HFOT), a nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post–9/11 veterans, as the organization’s exclusive flooring provider. As part of Shaw Industries, COREtec continues Shaw’s commitment to creating a better future in the communities it serves. This partnership was facilitated through ShawVET, an associate resource group that supports military service members, veterans, and their families throughout the company.
To commemorate the start of this partnership between the innovative flooring provider and the non-profit organization, a signing event took place on Oct. 28 with members from COREtec, Shaw Industries, and HFOT.
“We’re honored to work with an organization like Homes for our Troops--one that is positively impacting Veterans and their families,” said Kevin O’Meara, Shaw vice president of integrated supply chain, veteran, and executive sponsor of ShawVET. “This relationship with HFOT allows Shaw and COREtec to be a part of the healing journey for injured veterans. Providing durable, waterproof floors that are compatible with mobility aids and service animals helps to ensure they have safe, accessible and comfortable homes to support the next chapter of their lives as veterans.”
Since 2004, HFOT has built over 280 specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 veterans. In addition to providing accessible, specially designed homes for injured veterans, the organization also offers pro-bono financial planning to all home recipients to ensure their success as homeowners and a peer mentoring program consisting of veterans and spouses in the HFOT program.
