Heartfelt Memorial Day Message from The Carrington Companies

May 21, 2015

Memorial Day is a time to remember those brave men and women who have given their lives defending our freedom; it is also a time to show profound support for those who have been wounded protecting our nation. These heroic men and women gave their personal futures so that we may have a stronger one as a nation, and we are forever grateful for their sacrifice.

The Carrington Companies are proud to support our courageous military service members who have devoted their lives to protecting our country's freedom. This focus is not a fleeting interest for our organization; taking care of those who have fought and served protecting our security is our core philosophy. We are deeply committed to this cause for the long term, and will continue to dedicate our resources to make our Veterans’ lives a little bit better.

From Carrington House, to Veterans Airlift Command, to The Gary Sinise Foundation, our Carrington Charitable Foundation is proud to support various non-profit organizations dedicated to honoring the courageous sacrifices made by our military members and their families. Every supporter and Associate at the Carrington Companies should take great pride in what we have accomplished towards this goal, as it is a team effort that would not be possible without the help of our employees, volunteers and generous donors. We understand that military causes have a strong personal impact on our Associates, and we whole-heartedly value the passion our people have for the work we do as an organization to honor our troops. We would like to take this time to thank all Carrington Associates who have served our country, supported family members who have served, or have suffered the sacrifice of losing a loved one to protect our freedom.

Through our various programs, we will continue our efforts as a company to help improve the lives of those heroes who are in need of assistance. Carrington Charitable Foundation’s signature program, Carrington House, gives wounded Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts a home they can call their own. The Carrington Companies and The Gary Sinise Foundation’s R.I.S.E. program collaborate to build custom smart homes all across the United States to meet the unique needs of each wounded Veteran. All of the money raised under Carrington House is allocated directly toward the construction of these homes, five of which were completed last year and six scheduled to be finished this year.

Please join us in continuing to remember the selfless bravery of our heroes and honor all they have done for our nation. As a country, we must reflect on what it truly requires to live with freedom, and understand the sacrifices made to appreciate that privilege. We owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to our heroes and their families, caregivers, and loved ones. Freedom isn’t free, and Carrington’s promise to our military will remain an enduring priority.

On behalf of The Carrington Companies we’d like to thank our Nation’s Veterans and honor our Great Nation.
