Dear Friends,

        As 2018 comes to an end, we wanted to share the accomplishments of the year.
        Nationally, Building Homes for Heroes was blessed and honored to have gifted thirty "mortgage-free homes" in 2018 to military men and women who had sustained life-altering injuries from the Iraq and Afghan Wars. These homes bring the total to 160 since the inception of the organization.
        Building Homes for Heroes has Charity Navigator's highest rating of Four Stars with 93% of all money raised going to program.
        Locally, our two fundraising efforts were quite successful. The Fourth of July Family Fun Day at Buckley far surpassed our previous year. It was the first clear, blue sky day since the fire of early June. It seemed like the whole town was out.
        The Labor Day Weekend was also successful with refreshment sales at both Durango Harley Davidson and the 10th Street Block Party over the three day period. Our efforts over this weekend ride on the coattails of The Four Corners Motorcycle Rally which has shown new life thanks to the Stewardship of our own Harley Dealership.
        Our heartfelt thanks go out to you all. Your gifts and support are what drives us each year. Think of it, 160 families just celebrated the holidays in mortgage-free homes across the nation thanks to people like you. Gifts from a grateful nation.
        Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year. God Bless America.

Sincerely,
Building Homes for Heroes
