Artisan Group™ Countertop Fabricators Holds National Yard Sale Benefitting Homes for Our Troops

Homeowners Can Purchase Discounted Granite, Marble and Other Stone for Countertops and Benefit Injured Soldiers

September 26, 2011
AUSTIN – Sept. 20, 2011– October 14-16, Artisan Group countertop fabricators across America will host a National Yard Sale, selling granite and other stone remnants, with three percent of proceeds going to Homes for Our Troops to build specially-adapted homes for veterans. So, homeowners can purchase a beautiful piece of stone at a discounted price and help a veteran at the same time.

“These soldiers have given their blood, sweat, tears and in some cases part of themselves to defend our rights and freedoms in this country,” says Chad Seiders, Artisan Group Executive Director. “It is a privilege to give something back to them. Artisan Group has earmarked a portion of our first national yard sale for Homes for Our Troops so that these veterans can have a home that provides them more independence.”

“Homes for Our Troops appreciates the fundraising efforts of the Artisan Group,” says  John Gonsalves, President and Founder of Homes For Our Troops. “Because of the support from patriotic companies across the nation, we are able to restore freedom and independence back to our severely injured veterans through the gift of a specially adapted home.”
