CA Technologies today announced the donation of 3.1 acres of land to the Long Island Home Builders Care Development Corp. (LIHBCDC) to support efforts in building and providing new homes for returning veterans.
LIHBCDC is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit charitable arm of the Long Island Builders Institute (LIBI). Through the donation of land and dollars, and the donation or reduced charges of materials and labor, homes are awarded for purchase at a substantially reduced price to veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan who have applied and have been selected by a panel of VFW commanders. This program is made possible through the joint efforts of Suffolk County, private donors, local municipalities and members of LIBI through LIHBCDC’s “Building New Homes for Returning Veterans” program.
“CA Technologies has a long history of giving back to the communities where our employees live and work,” said Chuck Quinn, vice president, Real Estate, CA Technologies. “We are proud to support the efforts of LIHBCDC in providing affordable housing to veterans who gave their service to ensure the safety and security of our country.”
To participate in the program, military veterans need to write a letter detailing military service history, present living status, employment status and why this program would change his or her life. For more information contact Lois Fricke with LIHBCDC at 631-232-2345 or email@example.com
“LIHBCDC is extremely grateful to CA Technologies for this generous land donation,” said Tom Datre, President, LIHBCDC. “Our mission to build new homes for returning veterans can only be accomplished with the support of the community. This donation is a continuation in helping us to improve the lives of returning veterans and their families.”
