LOS ANGELES (PRWEB)
March 10, 2018
Homes 4 Families (H4F) hosted its first Celebs4Vets Build at the Veteran Enriched Neighborhood® in Santa Clarita, California on March 10, 2018 from 9 am to 2 pm. The Los Angeles-based nonprofit empowers low-income veterans and their families to enter the middle class by providing them with affordable housing and holistic services that build resiliency, self-sufficiency and economic growth. Over 30 celebrities picked up hammers and saws to raise a home.
Celebs4Vets is a membership-based group comprised of representatives of the entertainment industry who subscribe to the Homes 4 Families mission and lend their support by participating in H4F activities, events and programs. The Celebs4Vets Build provided members with the opportunity to help build one of the remaining 18 of 78 homes for low-income veterans and their families in Santa Clarita, California before H4F moves on to build another 56 veteran homes in Palmdale. Celebrities were divided into teams (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC), and the teams each rolled up their sleeves to spend the day framing their own portions of a house while also calling upon their fans to sponsor their team’s efforts. The build teams were highlighted by groups from Lethal Weapon, Speechless, SEAL Team, and The Brave, among others, representing their networks.
“We’re thrilled to bring individuals from the entertainment industry together to collaborate on volunteer efforts that we are all extremely passionate about,” said Donna Deutchman, President and CEO. “This build will be a special day for the veteran community as we literally raise the roof on a new home.”
The teams are organized as follows:
ABC Build Team
CBS Build Team
FOX Build Team
NBC Build Team
