SAIC Gives Back to Veterans With Building Homes for Heroes

Originally published at saic.com

 

In 2013, SAIC joined forces with Building Homes for Heroes (BHH), a national nonprofit organization that builds and modifies homes and then gifts them — mortgage-free — to veterans and their families. SAIC has helped donate 10 homes to our military heroes and their families through BHH, and we support the gifting of our 11th, 12th and 13th homes this year. SAIC is proud to support BHH’s mission and is committed to supporting our veterans and all those serving in our military.

This year, SAIC is honored to support the gifting of homes to our newest BHH heroes, U.S. Army Sergeant Alberto Montrond, Air Force Technical Sergeant Rahmeka Hopkins and Navy Petty Officer Second Class Anthony Thompson. We continue to raise money for veterans and their families through BHH at our fundraising page. Over the last nine years, SAIC has raised approximately $480,000 to support those that have given so much to us.
