BELOIT, Wis. — ABC Supply Co. Inc. is dedicated to helping people achieve their dreams — whether professional or personal. The company is taking this commitment one step further in 2020 by pledging a multimillion-dollar commitment to two nonprofit organizations that are focused on changing lives every day:
- Make-A-Wish®, which grants life-changing wishes for children diagnosed with critical illnesses.
- Homes For Our Troops, an organization that has built and donated over 295 specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 veterans to enable them to rebuild their lives.
Through its support of these organizations, ABC Supply further champions and lives its Core Value of "give back."
The company announced these corporate commitments at its national managers’ meeting earlier this year in Chicago to the resounding applause of nearly 2,000 associates.
“ABC Supply is honored to contribute to the missions of these two incredible organizations,” said Mike Jost, chief operating officer. “One of our Core Values is American Pride, which is why we are so passionate about the work Homes For Our Troops is doing. We’re also dedicated to making dreams come true, so we wanted to become a Make-A-Wish Champion Sponsor.”
The announcements were made even more special by two moving moments at the managers’ meeting:
- Army Sgt. Mario Lopez, a veteran and recipient of a specially adapted custom home in Texas through Homes For Our Troops, sang the National Anthem at the company’s event.
- A video sharing the experience of a young wish child in Florida whose wish of swimming with dolphins came true in early 2020, prior to COVID-19 impacts, with ABC Supply’s support.
These two corporate donations are made possible by the hard work and success of ABC Supply’s more than 15,000 associates across the country. More information about the company’s Give Back efforts, including its support of “Military Makeover,” can be found on ABC Supply’s blog.
