ABC Supply Champions Veterans: Over $5.2 Million Raised for Homes For Our Troops


BELOIT, Wis. — June 4, 2024 — After an incredible month of fundraising, ABC Supply Co., Inc. is excited to announce $5.2 million has been raised — wildly surpassing the $4 million goal — for the nonprofit Homes For Our Troops (HFOT). During the campaign, which partnered with AJ Foyt Racing at the 108th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge, ABC Supply matched the first $1 million in donations.

 

"We are so grateful and thrilled for the overwhelming support HFOT and our nation’s Veterans received in May. At ABC Supply, giving back is a fundamental part of who we are, and we are proud to celebrate our country by honoring Veterans in such a remarkable way,” says Mike Jost, chief operating officer at ABC Supply.


ABC Supply has been a Platinum Level Partner of HFOT since 2020. HFOT is an organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, enabling them to rebuild their lives. Since 2004, HFOT has built 380 specially adapted homes. Ninety cents of every dollar HFOT spends goes directly toward the program of building homes for severely injured Veterans.


“We are beyond grateful for ABC Supply’s sponsorship and support during the 2024 Indy 500,” says HFOT President and CEO Brigadier General (Ret) Tom Landwermeyer. “Their generous $1 million match was key to raising over $5.2 million and gave incredible visibility to our mission of Building Homes and Rebuilding Lives.”  



This is the third year ABC Supply has championed the monthlong fundraiser and donated the design for AJ Foyt Racing’s No. 14 Chevy, driven this year by Santino Ferrucci, who finished in eighth place in the Indy 500 last week.

 

“What an achievement! We couldn’t be more proud to be part of this program with our friends at ABC Supply,” says Larry Foyt, president of A.J. Foyt Enterprises, Inc. “Santino and the entire team feel inspired having the Veterans in our garage and racing the beautiful, patriotic Homes For Our Troops car. Great job by all to surpass the goal!”
