OH-IL Providing $50,000 Home Remodeling as a "Warm Welcome Home" to Chicago-area Military Family

-By Dan Proft

Last week, we emailed you to provide a brief introduction of Operation Homefront-Illinois, a vital organization formed immediately after 9/11 to provide emergency assistance to Illinois’ military families with a spouse deployed and wounded warriors who have returned home from service.

There are many ways we’re serving military families here in Illinois — including a new program we were pleased to launch with Galaxie Home Remodeling and WLS 890-AM.

This spring, WLS 890AM and Galaxie Home Remodeling are teaming up with Operation Homefront-Illinois for Warm Welcome Home – a program to thank a military family by remodeling their home! It’s our way of saying thank you to just one of the many families who sacrifice for our country.

Please click here to learn more about this great new program to help Chicago-area military families.

Military families from across the family are being nominated for and applying for this program. What the winning military family receives: Galaxie Home Remodeling will tackle the remodel — whether it is a bathroom, kitchen, deck or other room in the house, UP TO $50,000 — and Habitat Corporate Suites will provide housing for the family while their home is under construction.

It’s an unbelievable opportunity for an Illinois military family — and it’s Galaxie Home Remodeling’s and WLS 890-AM’s way of saying thank you to just one of the many families who sacrifice for our country.

Please visit the Operation Homefront-Illinois Web site to learn more about our mission and the heroes we serve on a daily basis.

Our vital programs rely on the generous contributions of Illinois citizens like you, and we’d welcome your generous online contribution.

Thanks so much for your time and interest. We’ll be in touch soon to update you on the “Warm Welcome Home” program, as well as our additional programs to support Illinois military families.
