Founded in 2011, the Gary Sinise Foundation’s mission has been to support the brave men and women that defend our freedoms and protect us here and overseas. Those that serve in the military, or as first responders, put their lives on the line daily – often resulting in life altering consequences for them and their families. The Gary Sinise Foundation RISE program (Restoring Independence, Supporting Empowerment), through the support of thousands of corporate sponsors, has developed specially adapted smart homes to over 50 brave heroes with injuries that makes doing the routine things most of us take for granted immensely difficult. At this time, the RISE program has another 18 homes under construction and more in the planning stages for 2019.
As a valued Gary Sinise Foundation partner since 2014, northAmerican agents have been privileged and humbled to safely deliver over 350,000 pounds of furnishings and personal possessions – the things that make a house a home – to 38 of these recipients.
So on this Veterans Day, northAmerican would like to say “thank you” to the Gary Sinise Foundation and the brave individuals they support for their service and selflessness, and for the honor of helping them settle in to their “forever” homes.
