Gerber Plumbing Fixtures Donates Bathroom Products to "Homes For Our Troops"

Homes For Our TroopsWOODRIDGE, Ill. (October 2011) -Homes for Our Troops, a national non-profit organization dedicated to building homes for injured veterans at no cost, has completed its most recent home building project for Army SSG Juan Roldan in Parrish, Fla. Serving as a building materials contributor, Gerber Plumbing Fixtures donated its sinks, faucets and Avalanche toilets to Home for Our Troops to help build Roldan’s new home, which were installed by local plumbing contractor, Gator Plumbing.

“As a Marine Corps veteran, I was excited that we - at Gator Plumbing - accepted the challenge of assisting with building Staff Sergeant Juan Roldan a home in Parrish.  When looking for industry leaders to partner with I immediately thought about Gerber,” said William Smock, vice president of Gator Plumbing, Inc. “Gerber’s products deliver every time and we knew they would satisfy Roldan and his family.”

All of the residences built by Homes for Our Troops exceed ADA requirements by featuring large door openings and wide hallways, roll under work areas in the kitchen, and a master bath with a large roll-in shower.

Left a double amputee above the knees after an EFP explosion in Sadr City, Iraq on December 29, 2006, Roldan’s home will provide him with maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently.
