Acme Brick Co. will provide brick at below cost for 100 homes as part of Operation Finally Home, a nationwide effort to build homes for disabled veterans. Operation Finally Home is an outgrowth of a program started by the Bay Area Builders' Association, led by Dan Wallrath. Because of his efforts, Wallrath was one of 10 finalists for CNN's Hero of the Year Award.
“A major part of Acme's mission is to be positively involved in the communities we serve,” said Dennis Knautz, president and CEO of Ft. Worth, Texas-based Acme Brick. “What better way to fulfill that mission than by supporting individuals who have sacrificed so much and risked everything for our country?” Visit www.brick.com.
