Meritage Homes to Donate Additional Homes to Operation Homefront in 2014
Homes now open for application in California, Florida and Texas
Meritage Homes Corporation has renewed its partnership with Operation Homefront to provide three more brand new Meritage homes to the Homes on the Homefront program.
Meritage Homes plans to build and donate a home in each of the following three Meritage communities: Winter Springs, Florida; Lincoln, California; and Houston, Texas.
The homes are now open for applications from eligible military and veteran families. For more information about the program, or to apply for one of the homes, please visit http://www.homesonthehomefront.org/ and click on Current Homes. The deadline for submissions is midnight August 3, 2014.
Operation Homefront will select the recipients for the new homes and announce their names on September 11, with keys to be awarded around Veterans Day 2014.
This amazing partnership began in 2013, when Meritage Homes built and donated three new homes to Operation Homefront in Phoenix, Arizona; Raleigh, North Carolina; and San Antonio, Texas.
“It has been very rewarding to hear how the homes Meritage provided last year have helped relieve the stress and enriched the lives of several veterans and their families,” said Steven J. Hilton, Meritage’s chairman and CEO. “We are grateful for the service of our veterans and for organizations like Operation Homefront whose mission it is to help them when they return home. We hope to be able to continue assisting them for years to come.”
The Homes on the Homefront program began in 2012. Since its inception, Operation Homefront has placed more than 300 veterans and their families in mortgage-free homes. Meritage is the only new home builder to join the program.
