Over the Edge for Veterans – 2017

On Saturday, October 7th, Homes 4 Families (formerly Habitat for Humanity SFV / SCV) hosted an “OVER THE EDGE FOR VETERANS” fundraiser event. DuctTesters was a proud sponsor and sent two of their clients, Michael Hall from RSI Communities and Mark Mandernacht from Montage Development, rappelling down 25-stories in support of the event. The Los Angeles Police Department’s SWAT Team rappelled first. You will see a photo below of LA’s SWAT Team with Judi Maclean from Homes 4 Familes.  All the proceeds from this event go directly towards the construction of new homes and social services for low-income Veterans and their families.

“To date, Homes 4 Families has partnered with non-profits, government entities, and corporations to bring the outcome-proven Enriched Neighborhood® model to communities. Primarily with Habitat for Humanity San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys (SF/SCV) as builder, we have built over 144 homes in 5 Enriched Neighborhoods® in Northern Los Angeles County, are under construction on 80 homes for low-income veteran families, and are working with Habitat for Humanity Riverside to build 38 additional homes for low-income veterans.” – Homes 4 Families 

Over the Edge for Veteran’s Event has currently raised $142,061 of its $145,000 goal. Please help the fundraising effort by donating here: https://www.firstgiving.com/HabitatSFSCV/go-overthe-edge-for-veterans-2017 or Read More about Homes4Families: http://www.homes4families.org/.
