Columbus Hears About House Of Heros

· Reading Time: 1 minute

Susan Wood and Pam Aldridge from the House of Heroes spoke to the Exchange Club of Columbus.  They explained their organization helps and honors military and public safety veterans and/or their spouses who have served our country faithfully and sacrificially. Through service , House of Heroes, Inc. (HOH) volunteers attempt to convey our nation’s gratitude by making minor repairs to their home at no cost to the homeowner/veteran. Recipients are then recognized at a special ceremony and are presented with a flag that has been flown over the Capitol of the United States in their honor. Their numbers are amazing – since 2000 they have helped over 700 individuals. In 2016 alone, 78 veterans were helped. To date in 2017, 47 have already been helped! And there are still 178 waiting.
