Homes for our Troops Teri Watson
We Proudly Support Our Troops
Budget Blinds, a division of Home Franchise Concepts (HFC), has partnered with national non-profit, Homes for Our Troops (HFOT), a national non-profit that provides specially adapted, mortgage-free homes for severely injured Veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Through this partnership, Budget Blinds will provide window coverings across the country in every HFOT home over the next three years.
“At Home Franchise Concepts we share a strong commitment to supporting Veterans who have served our country. Many of our founders have personal connections to the U.S. Armed Forces as do a number of our franchisees across the country,” says Shirin Behzadi, Chief Executive Officer of Homes Franchise Concepts. “It is our hope that the synergies between Budget Blinds and Homes for Our Troops will continue to honor returning Veterans for years to come.”
“Homes for Our Troops is fortunate to have the support of patriotic businesses like Budget Blinds to help us in our mission of building specially adapted homes for our nation’s Veterans,” says Major General (USA, Retired) Timothy P. McHale –President/CEO of Homes for Our Troops. “Having partnerships like this is crucial in allowing us to return the gift of freedom and independence that these Heroes fought so bravely to protect.”
The partnership with Homes for Our Troops comes about a year after Home Franchise Concepts developed a program called the Million Dollar Franchise Event (MDFE), which is a commitment to providing $1M in discounts to U.S. Veterans interested in purchasing one of the company’s franchise brands.
Budget Blinds has partnered with Homes for Our Troops (HFOT), a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization nationally to provide blinds on the windows of mortgage-free, specially adapted homes that are built for severely injured Veterans that served in Iraq and Afghanistan. We have a 3 year goal of donating $1,000,000 in cash, product, and services to Homes For Our Troops. Thanks to our manufacturing partner, Springs Window Fashions, we are able to commit to this goal.
Budget Blinds would like to thank its manufacturing partner Springs Window Fashions for donating the window treatments that will add beauty, convenience and energy efficiency to these homes for many years to come and for allowing us to partner with them to donate $1,000,000 to this admirable cause.
