Silestone by Cosentino announced a three-year national partnership with Homes For Our Troops, a privately-funded nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially-adapted custom homes nationwide to severely injured veterans. The partnership will include Silestone surfacing for an estimated 90 homes, contributing both to the home’s design, as well as the veterans’ ease of living. Cosentino joins the ranks of fellow brands including Kohler, Whirlpool and Armstrong Flooring that also support Homes For Our Troops.
Known for its strength and resilience, Silestone will help make everyday life for Veterans and their families a little easier, thanks to its high resistance to stains, impacts and scratches. It also boasts an exclusive bacteriostatic property that helps reduce the spread of germs – a key component in kitchen and bath applications.
“We are honored to partner with such an impactful organization like Homes For Our Troops,” said Massimo Ballucchi, marketing director of Cosentino North America. “We are all forever indebted to our nation’s veterans for their commitment and sacrifice, and are honored to be a part of the team that helps them rebuild their lives in a home best designed for their needs and quality of life.”
Since its founding in 2004, Homes For Our Troops has built more than 241 homes for veterans nationwide, with 85 projects currently underway.
“Because of partners like Cosentino providing high-end products, we are able to place more veterans in custom built homes that eliminate a monthly mortgage payment, and enable our veterans to focus on their recovery and rebuilding their lives,” said Bill Ivey, executive director of Homes For Our Troops. “We’re grateful to Cosentino for joining us in reinforcing America’s commitment to taking care of our Veterans after they return home.”
