Aimed at home repair and renovation for low income residents, the program also trains unskilled workers in home repair to help move people from unemployment to work. The program will launch at the Pueblo Indian reservation in Taos, New Mexico with plans for expansion into other communities.
To honor the brave men and women in our nation’s emergency services, the Foundation will host its highly anticipated 911 Hero Salute Charity Golf Tournament in Tracy, CA on Sept. 11, 2017 with plans to expand the tournament to other states each year. A portion of the proceeds will go toward local firefighter charity programs.
