Masco Gives More Than $1 Million In Support Of Military Veterans; 11 Michigan Organizations Among Recipients

TAYLOR, Mich., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Masco Corporation (NYSE: MAS), one of the world's leading manufacturers of home improvement and building products, and its Foundation have partnered – through a combination of products and cash grants – to award over $1 million in support of its veteran initiative:  "America's Heroes: A Million Thanks".

Among the 50 veteran-focused organizations receiving awards, 11 of the organizations are based in Michigan, home of the company's headquarters and two of its subsidiaries - Masco Cabinetry, the manufacturer of three nationally recognized cabinet brands, KraftMaid®, Merillat® and QualityCabinets; and BrassCraft Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer of plumbing products.  The organizations will receive much-needed funding to support active military personnel and reservists, post-9/11 veterans, as well as their families.

"Masco values the service and sacrifice of our U.S. veterans, military troops, and their families, and is committed to supporting their successful transition from soldier to civilian status.  We are especially proud to support the organizations in the communities where we live, work and do business," said Timothy Wadhams, president and CEO, Masco Corporation.

Donations are being made to veterans' organizations that provide affordable and physically accessible housing; education, job training and employment initiatives; and related military support services (e.g., overseas support packages, benefit procurement, health care, reintegration activities, etc.).

The selected organizations in Michigan include:  Accounting Aid Society, American Veterans (AMVETS), Communities of Hope Inc., Michigan Freedom Center, Growing Hope, Michigan Colleges Foundation, Motor City Blight Busters, Piquette Square for Veterans, Sphinx, Volunteers of America and Washtenaw Community College Veterans Center.
