ABC Supply Celebrates Homes For Our Troops’ 300th Home

Earlier this year, ABC Supply announced its multimillion-dollar commitment to Homes For Our Troops (HFOT). HFOT is a nonprofit that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans to enable them to rebuild their lives. Through its support of HFOT, ABC Supply was honored to donate materials and help the organization celebrate a big milestone: the delivery of its 300th specially adapted custom home.

The nonprofit organization donated its 300th home to U.S. Army Sergeant Nathan Shumaker in Hillsboro, Missouri, on September 12. SGT Shumaker, a Purple Heart recipient, was severely injured while serving in Afghanistan.

The delivery of the home was marked with two events, which were held in compliance with regulations set forth by the Jefferson County Health Department. 

Volunteer Day: The community helped with the landscaping plan for this home by planting flowers and laying sod. This special event coincided with September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, a day where Americans volunteer in their local communities in tribute to the individuals who were lost or injured during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, first responders and the many who have risen in service to defend freedom.

Key Ceremony: ABC Supply escorted SGT Shumaker to his home, and HFOT presented him and his family with the keys. The event included a speaking portion, ribbon-cutting ceremony and flag raising with an ABC Supply truck.

“ABC Supply is proud to support the work Homes For Our Troops does to make a difference in the lives of Veterans who have given so much for our country,” said Mike Jost, chief operating officer. “It’s even more special that we were able to escort SGT Shumaker to his home for the key ceremony and personally thank him for his service.”
