Hundreds to build home this weekend for wounded vet
GOLDEN, Colo. (6/17/08)--Hundreds of laborers and volunteers involved with the credit union movement will help build a home for wounded Iraq war veteran Staff Sgt. Travis Strong three days this weekend. Starting Friday morning, Colorado Lt. Gov. Barbara O’Brien, Democratic National Convention Committee CEO Leah D. Daughtry, Homes For Our Troops Founder and President John Gonsalves, and officials representing the National Journal and credit unions will begin to construct a home for Strong in a Homes for Our Troops Build Brigade event. Homes for Our Troops is a non-profit organization that builds homes for wounded American soldiers. The home will be located in Golden, Colo., and is a joint project with the credit union movement, the Democratic National Convention Committee and the National Journal Group. The Credit Union National Association, the Credit Union Association of Colorado and the Credit Union Association of Wyoming also have partnered to raise funds, provide donated materials and volunteer labor for the project. The home will be presented to Strong and his family around the time of the Democratic National Convention, Aug. 25 to 28 held in Denver. A similar event will take place in St. Paul, Minn., before the Republican National Convention.
