Mr. REED. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Renovating Hope, a
nonprofit organization that assists America's heroes in need.
Renovating Hope's mission is to provide professional and sustainable
home repairs and renovations to families of men and women currently
serving in the armed forces, as well as veterans. This organization
delivers renewal and hope to the members of our military who are in
need of assistance, and provides comfort to their families.
I recently had the privilege of observing Renovating Hope's service and commitment to our military 'heroes in my district. The organization developed a project to remodel the home of Retired Army Sgt. Robert C. Costley, a Purple Heart Award recipient who was critically wounded by a roadside bomb during his tour in Iraq. The renovation of Sgt. Costley's home in Erin, New York, would not have been completed without the leadership of Renovating Hope and the hard work of countless volunteers from the community.
I am proud to recognize the efforts of Renovating Hope in assisting our military heroes, and I commend their dedication to giving back to the individuals who have given so much of themselves to serve this great country. This organization truly exemplifies the commitment to serving the men and women of the United States military. As Americans, we should strive to emulate this commitment every day.
