Good Deeds

Yesterday, Iraq War veteran and 9/11 First Responder, Chief Petty Officer Colin Redy, USCG (Ret.) and his family received a mortgage-free home in Brick, New Jersey.  The donation of the home is being coordinated through the A Warrior’s Wish® Program from Hope For The Warriors®.
This summer, BCB Community Bank approached Hope For The Warriors® to identify a military family that would benefit from a mortgage-free home.  Through our work with military families and relationships with VA Hospitals and caseworkers, we identified a wounded service member and family in the area.
After reviewing the needs of the family, we realized that the home would require renovations to meet the needs for a family of six.  To complete this project, we have enlisted help from other companies and organizations.  Plaza Construction has provided the architecture plans.  Nonprofit organization Heart 9/11 will be organizing volunteers to complete the work.
Through our A Warrior's Wish® Program, Hope For The Warriors® will raise the funds to purchase the necessary materials to complete the renovations.
A Warrior’s Wish® supports the long-term goal of hope beyond recovery.  Knowing that Wishes can come true directly affects service members’ spirits in addition to the families and communities that support them. Hope For The Warriors® is proud to grant this Wish and work with the Brick, New Jersey community.
