Coming from families who have served our country,
Nick and Rebecca Drake had long held a vision of opening a foundation to give back to the men and women who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom. Seeing a gap in the assistance being offered to veterans, the couple decided to open a foundation which would give back to local veterans by helping them with HVAC, electrical, roofing, and plumbing needs. “There are a lot of foundations out there currently that are helping veterans with food and clothing and those types of things,” says Rebeecca, “but no one really to just help with everyday, just household things like hot water or an air conditioner in the summer when it’s 100 degrees outside, some things that a lot of us just take for granted that they don’t get to experience.”
Although the foundation has only recently begun receiving applications for assistance, the Drake family has a great vision for the impact their foundation can have on the community. “[Our] vision for this foundation is that – within the next few years – that we are successful enough to be able to help every veteran in the valley that needs assistance and not ever have to turn anyone away,” explains Rebecca.
