While protecting your family is Power Home Technologies’ number one priority, giving back to our local community is also very important to us.
Operation Coming Home
In 2007 a group of local veterans created a project designed to aid local military service members who were severely wounded in combat. By fulfilling these veterans desire to live the American Dream of home ownership, Operation: Coming Home enables vets to live a more normal life despite their injuries.
This program has been a huge success because of many caring organizations and individuals who willingly contribute their time, effort and finances to show their heartfelt thanks to our local veterans who gave their all to protect our American way of life – a freedom seldom experienced throughout the rest of the world!
For the past two years, Power Home Technologies has sponsored a home with Operation Coming Home and provided all the low voltage for a home along with a fully monitoring Power Home Technologies Security System.
In the past 6 years, Power Home Technologies has donated over $172,000 to the eastern North Carolina chapter of Make-A-Wish® America. These funds were raised through employee contributions, customer donations and company sponsored events like our “March Madness Contest.”
Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true has positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illness, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Make-A-Wish® is one of the world’s leading children’s charities, serving children in every community in the United States and its territories.
With the help of generous donors like Power Home Technologies, Make-A-Wish® is able to grant a wish somewhere in the country every 37 minutes.
