Wallick & Volk Mortgage announced their participation in a special campaign called Heroes to Homeowners. Through this program, Wallick & Volk will sponsor a mortgage-free home presentation for a deserving combat wounded veteran.
The Heroes to Homeowners campaign is a program of the national nonprofit, Boot Campaign, and was championed by The Duncan Group and Mortgage Coach to bring together mortgage industry leaders to show support for our nation’s military and honor our wounded veterans. By creating a special partnership with the Boot Campaign, and the organization’s program partner Military Warriors Support Foundation, the group will sponsor 9 mortgage-free homes for 9 combat wounded veterans and their families. “These heroes have made great sacrifices for our country, we are excited to be able to honor them and give something back,” stated Jim Volk, Chairman of Wallick & Volk Mortgage.
Michael Groff, President and CEO of Wallick & Volk Mortgage offered this statement, “Wallick & Volk has helped many veterans over the years to realize the American Dream of home ownership. We have great respect for our military men and women, and are thrilled to actually provide a mortgage-free home to one of our nation’s heroes.”
Wallick & Volk and the other industry leaders have each donated $30,000 to the Boot Campaign to make these dreams a reality. That contribution will provide a mortgage-free home for a physically and/ or emotionally wounded veteran, as well as any home renovations needed for safety and accessibility and counseling for the financial stability needed to maintain home ownership. Details will follow about the actual home presentation event to take place in 2014, along with the name of the veteran who will receive this amazing award.
