Advance Auto Parts Donates $1,000,000


Darren Jackson, Chief Executive Officer of Advance Auto Parts, presented Andy Pujol, president of Building Homes for Heroes®, with a check in the amount of $1,000,000 at the Advance Cares Vendor Golf Classic at the historic Omni Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia. It is the third consecutive year that Building Homes for Heroes® has been named a major beneficiary of the event. Advance Auto Parts is the top financial donor of Building Homes for Heroes®. The $1,000,000 marks the largest single dollar donation from a corporation received by Building Homes for Heroes® since the charity’s inception in 2006.

The event also marked the 21st anniversary of Advance Auto Parts support of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. With this donation, Advance Auto Parts has now donated $2.4 million to Building Homes for Heroes®. Due in large part to the tremendous generosity displayed by Advance Auto Parts, Building Homes for Heroes® is set to gift 28 homes to veterans in need in 2014, and has set a goal of gifting 35 to 45 mortgage-free homes in 2015. Building Homes for Heroes® would like to thank Advance Auto Parts for its remarkable support of the men and women of the military, and its charitable efforts throughout the world.
