Celebrate Local Heroes - Building Homes For Heroes

My name is Stacey Benson and I am currently helping to bring awareness to the 
Western New York area about Building Homes for Heroes, which is a NY state 
based organization and 501(c)(3).

I am a military wife of 8 years and this organization really hits home with 
me.  As my husband served his time over seas during the war, I was constantly 
afraid of "getting the call" or the dreaded "knock at the door" giving me bad 
news of injuries or even worse death.  One organization is doing everything 
in their power to help those who have returned from war severely wounded and 
that organization is Building Homes for Heroes.

Building Homes for Heroes is currently raising money to build a war hero, 
Army Specialist Brendan Marrocco of Staten Island, NY, a new home suitable for 
his massive injuries, with an estimated building cost of $500,000.
