- Helping Build Homes for Our Nation’s Heroes
Employees of TASC held fundraisers across the country to mark Memorial Day and honor our warfighters. We raised $11,000, matched dollar-for- dollar by the company, for a donation of $22,000 to Building Homes for Heroes. The funds will go to renovate the Texas home of Army Specialist Andrew Toppin and his family. Toppin, who received a Purple Heart and numerous other honors, was severely wounded while serving in Iraq.
"We are proud to contribute to Building Homes for Heroes and help make life a little easier for our wounded warriors when they come home," said John Hynes, TASC’s chief operating officer.
A fundraising picnic was held at TASC’s headquarters in Chantilly, VA, on May 15. Other fundraising events included a chili cook-off in San Antonio, TX, a wear-jeans-to-work day in Andover, MA, and an employee lunch in San Diego.
