Story By: ANNE FORNORO / AJ FOYT RACING – INDIANAPOLIS, IN – ABC Supply and AJ Foyt Racing collaborated in a donation match campaign for the 106th Running of the Indianapolis 500 to support the Homes For Our Troops organization.
America rallied behind its Veterans, donating over $1 million to Homes For Our Troops. With ABC Supply’s match of donations pledged from May 1 to May 31, over $2 million was raised to support Veterans!
With the race happening on Memorial Day weekend, it had a deeper meaning to all who attended or watched from home as J.R. Hildebrand piloted the Homes For Our Troops Chevrolet to a 12th place finish in the 500-mile contest.
AJ Foyt Racing’s No. 11 Chevrolet Indy car was designed in the red, white, and blue colors of the Homes For Our Troops non-profit which builds custom-designed homes for severely injured post 9/11 veterans. Originally scheduled as a 10-day match (from May 21-31), ABC Supply generously proposed tp match all donations in the month of May.
While the donation match has ended, ABC Supply continues its multimillion-dollar partnership with Homes For Our Troops to help them in “Building Homes and Rebuilding Lives” for severely injured, post 9/11 Veterans.
