US LBM Foundation Commits $100,000 To Housing For Wounded Veterans


BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Nov. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The US LBM Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by leading specialty building materials distributor US LBM, has committed $100,000 to the Gary Sinise Foundation's R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence, Supporting Empowerment) Program, which builds mortgage-free, specially adapted smart homes for our nation's most severely wounded heroes.

"The work of the Gary Sinise Foundation aligns with two important focus areas of the US LBM Foundation: honoring our veterans and providing housing to those in need," said US LBM Foundation Chairman and US LBM President and CEO L.T. Gibson. "It is our honor to partner with such a worthwhile organization and to contribute funds and discounted building materials toward building homes for our wounded heroes."

Through the R.I.S.E. program, the US LBM Foundation is supporting the construction of three projects as well as providing discounted building materials through US LBM's network of local building material suppliers. The specific projects are:

Additionally, two R.I.S.E. projects the US LBM Foundation contributed to in 2020 completed earlier this year:

In the last two years, the US LBM Foundation has donated more than $175,000 to multiple veteran organizations that provide housing to wounded veterans.

"Our veterans and their families have sacrificed so much for our country," said Gibson. "This Veterans Day, and every day, we say a heartfelt 'thank you' to everyone who has served."

Since its inception in 2013, the US LBM Foundation has provided more than $1 million to support organizations that honor veterans and their families, provide housing for those in need, support the development and health of children, aid victims of natural disasters and promote the prevention and treatment of diseases.

The US LBM Foundation is registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in communities across the United States. The Foundation was established in 2013 by US LBM, a leader in the building materials industry, to help fulfill the company's mission of giving back in the communities where it operates. The US LBM Foundation supports causes and organizations through financial and in-kind donations that address critical community challenges, including economic development, housing, health care and human services.
