Frank Siller, the CEO of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, on Breitbart News Saturday issued a problem to Fortune 500 CEOs and sports activities groups to assist homeless veterans.
Siller spoke to Breitbart News Saturday host and Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle because the Tunnel to Towers Foundation celebrated the grand opening of its Houston Veterans Village that can home and repair greater than 100 veterans.
“We want a lot of them transitioning out and going back to the workforce and getting their homes,” Siller defined to Breitbart News Saturday.
He added, “We’re making a promise that we’re eradicating homelessness amongst the veterans.”
“We take care of our injured service members and gold star families and fallen first responders that have young children. But now, we’ve expanded to eradicating homelessness amongst our veterans,” Siller continued.
Siller then challenged Fortune 500 CEOs and the house owners of sports activities franchises throughout the NFL, MLB, NBA, and NHL to be part of the mission to eradicate veteran homelessness. Siller referred to as on these figures to donate $1 million per yr for 5 years and $250,000 per yr for every sports activities workforce.
“American Express has already stepped up and for the first time ever with us, in a big way, they’re donating a couple of million dollars to the Tunnel to Towers to eradicate homelessness,” Siller defined.
“We have General Motors, they’re all in, the Home Depot has been part of the Tunnell to Towers 12 plus years,” he added.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation additionally stated that it has paid off the mortgages for 33 Gold Star households, 13 fallen first responders with prior navy service, and 4 good properties for catastrophically injured veterans.
