Armstrong Announces Exclusive Partnership With Homes For Our Troops To Build Homes For Severely Injured Veterans

LANCASTER, Pa., Dec. 6, 2012  /PRNewswire/ --  Armstrong Floor Products is proud to announce its partnership with Homes for Our Troops (HFOT), a national nonprofit, non-partisan organization that builds specially adapted homes for the nation's severely injured veterans.  

Armstrong, as the exclusive flooring supplier to HFOT, will donate floors for approximately 30 homes to be built across the country in 2013.   The houses are built at no cost to the veteran through the support of individuals, foundations and corporate contributors.

A portion of the sales from the company's new American Scrape collection will be dedicated to supporting this effort.  American Scrape features richly textured hardwood floors, inspired by the beauty of the American landscape, and each floor is made in the USA.

"We are proud  that we can play a small role in helping these injured veterans live more comfortably in their new homes, although 'proud' does not begin to describe how we feel about the opportunity to help return freedom and independence to a few of our nation's most severely wounded service members," said Armstrong Senior Vice President Kevin Biedermann.

"We hope that our participation will bring attention to this worthy organization, as the opportunity and need is great," said Biedermann.  "The more volunteers and donations that Homes For Our Troops receives, the more veterans they can help."

"It is only with continued support from sponsors like Armstrong that together, we can help more severely injured veterans eliminate the daily obstacles and barriers that their physical limitations impose upon them and their families. Every donation of time, labor, materials and money, helps us to fulfill our commitment to our service members who have been severely injured in combat operations," said SMA Kenneth Preston, President & Director, Homes For Our Troops.

Armstrong products donated through the sponsorship include engineered hardwood and resilient floors that meet universally designed criteria. The homes include many products that help the veterans participate in and enjoy daily life with their families.  Each house is designed to provide maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently after returning injured from service.

Consider donating supplies or labor or making a monetary donation. For more information, visit www.homesforourtroops.org.  For information on Armstrong Floor Products, visit www.armstrong.com.
