Cargill Beef is a proud National Sponsor of “Homes for Our Troops.” Purchasing specially marked packages of ground beef featured in participating U.S. retail grocery stores helps us continue our support of Homes for Our Troops and builds awareness for our ground beef initiative, Help a Hero Come Home.

Every day, American heroes put their lives on the line to fight for their country. In this battle for freedom, many of these brave service members suffer grave physical injuries, which can affect them every day for the rest of their life. Although medical care and other forms of support are provided to these heroes, they often return to a house that no longer welcomes them as a home should.

Accessing kitchen appliances, navigating hallways, showering and a number of other everyday actions around the house can prove to be insurmountable obstacles to those with serious and permanent injuries. Homes for Our Troops is an organization dedicated to helping injured veterans by raising funds and organizing the construction of custom-built, fully accessible homes for those who served in the military and returned after September 11, 2001.

As a proud supplier of beef to millions of American families, Cargill Beef has partnered with Homes for Our Troops to raise money to further support the organization's tremendous efforts to assist the heroes that defend our great nation. With more than 130 homes completed already, the organization will build 45 more in 2013 alone.

If you'd like to make an individual donation in support of Homes for Our Troops, please DONATE NOW. Because the organization is funded completely through the generous donations of companies and individuals like you, every penny raised can help make a world of difference for a hero in need.

45 Homes are being built in 2013 across America

Army SGT Brian Jergens, a medic, was driving a HUMVEE during his first deployment to Afghanistan on August 7, 2011, when it hit an IED. In the resulting blast, he lost both of his legs below the knee, suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, hearing loss, internal organ damage, a broken neck, and damage to his right elbow. Brian remained in hospital care for more than a year, and still has a long road ahead with a variety of demanding therapies occupying most of his and wife Jennifer's time.

In September 2006, while on his third deployment, Marine Sgt Chris Santiago found himself plagued by a feeling of uneasiness and an anxious sense that trouble was on the horizon. After days away from his Forward Operating Base, Sgt Santiago was just steps away from peace of mind. Upon returning to the base, he stepped out of the HUMVEE he was riding in to open a gate. He heard a muffled pop followed by a large explosion. Realizing he'd stepped on an IED, he never lost consciousness. In the blast, he lost both legs and sustained severe hand and arm injuries.
