DeVore Homes participates in large contribution to nonprofit military support group

• Local manufactured housing retailer teams up with Clayton Home Building Group to provide donation to nonprofit

KNOXVILLE — DeVore Homes announced participation in a contribution to the Hope For The Warriors, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for post-9/11 active duty, National Guard, and reserve service members and veterans from all branches of the military.

Their programs also serve military families, families of the fallen and military caregivers.

A check presentation was held in Louisville, Ky., at the Kentucky Expo Center Jan. 21, where a representative from the Hope For The Warriors organization, Jessica McKinney, was on hand to accept the contribution from the Clayton home building group President Keith Holdbrooks and Kevin Clayton, chief executive officer, in the amount of $33,600.

“We are honored to accept this generous donation, which enables us to continue serving thousands of military families across the country,” Hope For The Warriors spokesperson Jessica McKinney said. “One of our core values is to meet the changing needs of service members and their families and it is through donations like these that we are able to achieve our goals.”

The contribution is tied to “The Patriot Home,” a thoughtfully designed, three bedroom, two bath home that gleans exciting features such as a granite island countertop in the kitchen, a huge walk-in tile shower in the master bath and a spacious craft and laundry area.

For every Patriot home purchased by the retailer, a $100 pledge is committed to the organization.

“To team with our retailer partners to make a difference for an organization like Hope For The Warriors makes us proud,” Clayton home building group President Keith Holdbrooks said. “These are the men and women and their families that sacrificed for all of us to enjoy the freedoms we have. We are fortunate to have found a group that is doing the right thing and proud that we can be a part of that effort.”

The Hope For The Warriors Mission Statement

Hope For The Warriors believes those touched by military service can succeed at home by restoring their sense of self, family, and hope. Nationally, Hope For The Warriors provides comprehensive support programs for service members, veterans, and military families that are focused on tradition, health and wellness, peer engagement, and connections to community resources.
