DALLAS, Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Populus Financial Group showed their support by donating $5,000 to Homes For Our Troops at a local key ceremony event in Valley View, TX. At the event, Sergeant Reynolds and his family received the keys to their specially adapted custom home.
Homes For Our Troops is a publicly funded nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.
"We are thrilled Populus Financial Group chose to support Homes For Our Troops," said Tom Landwermeyer, President and CEO for Homes For Our Troops. "The generosity of companies like this helps advance our mission of Building Homes and Rebuilding Lives and enables us to build more homes for deserving Veterans."
This year in August, Populus Financial Group launched their Chip In For Charity initiative, adding new charity options for accountholders of the ACE Flare™ Account by MetaBank®. Homes For Our Troops was one of the added debit cards.
"We are proud to announce Homes For Our Troops as one of the new charities we support," said Eric Norrington, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs for Populus Financial Group. "Their mission to build homes and rebuild lives for those that have fought for our country really resonates with our employees and customers."
This charity is now a part of Populus's ACE Cash Express charitable-giving program, the ACE Community Fund, which has donated more than $14 million to organizations across the nation since its inception in 2004.
