My name is Stacey Benson and I am currently helping to bring awareness to the
Western New York area about Building Homes for Heroes, which is a NY state
based organization and 501(c)(3).
I am a military wife of 8 years and this organization really hits home with
me. As my husband served his time over seas during the war, I was constantly
afraid of "getting the call" or the dreaded "knock at the door" giving me bad
news of injuries or even worse death. One organization is doing everything
in their power to help those who have returned from war severely wounded and
that organization is Building Homes for Heroes.
Building Homes for Heroes is currently raising money to build a war hero,
Army Specialist Brendan Marrocco of Staten Island, NY, a new home suitable for
his massive injuries, with an estimated building cost of $500,000.
