The Austin-based cannabusiness has its sights set on increasing its donations to nonprofits that support U.S. veterans.
AUSTIN, Texas, October 12, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Hometown Hero announced its $25,000 donation to Operation Finally Home. The donation will be used by the nonprofit to help build mortgage-free homes and provide home modifications for U.S. veterans and families of fallen service members. U.S. Coast Guard veteran and Hometown Hero CEO Lukas Gilkey met with Operation Finally Home founder Dan Wallrath and U.S. Army veteran Jorge De Leon in New Braunfels, Texas, to present the donation.
"I was overwhelmed with the impact and service this nonprofit provides to our disabled veterans," said Gilkey. "What a blessing for Mr. Wallrath to follow his heart as the founder of Operation Finally Home; we will definitely be giving more to this organization in the future. It was an honor to meet Jorge, an amazing veteran who received a house from the nonprofit. Jorge's energy is contagious, and I can't think of anyone more deserving than a veteran with his drive and passion."
