Building Homes for Heroes is a national organization that recognizes those who serve in the United States Armed Forces by supporting the needs of severely wounded or disabled soldiers and their families. The organization strives to build or renovate quality homes and donate them, mortgage-free, to injured veterans nationwide.
Recently, the P1 Group Las Vegas office was invited to donate goods and services to help with the building of a home for Army Staff Sergeant Jared Stacey.
Jared was left with a severe brain injury and PTSD from serving multiple tours in the Middle East.
P1 Group was invited to participate in the full house remodel/upgrade by Joseph Glazier with Luxor Hotel & Casino (MGM). Joe has had a working relationship with P1 Group for more than a decade. Joe says he was inspired to get involved with this cause after seeing a TV segment on Building Homes for Heroes.
“My father was a decorated WWII hero and I have always been extremely proud of our military. My mother also served,” Joe said. “The men and women who serve sacrificially to protect our freedoms deserve our thanks and respect.”
“After I evaluate the scope of work, I reach out to contractors I have successfully partnered with in my career,” Joe explained. “I have worked with [Vice President] Brad Davis and [Service Specialist] Mario Vitale at P1 Group. Both are true professionals and know how to get the job done.”
Mario Vitale and Plumber Journeyman Louis Polanco did the actual work which included supplying and installing plumbing fixtures for a handicap shower on the second floor and also installed all customer supplied faucets and sinks.
The total goods and services donated by P1 Group came to nearly $4,500. Building Homes for Heroes strives to build “one home every 11 days” all over the U.S. Anyone wishing to volunteer or donate to the organization can learn more at buildinghomesforheroes.org.
