Rigid Global Buildings Donates Golf Tournament Proceeds to Homes for Our Troops

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - May 13, 2013) - Rigid Global Buildings, an industry leading manufacturer of pre-engineered steel buildings, never limits excellence to its products. Rigid also places high value on excellent corporate citizenship. The company again underscored that commitment with proceeds from its annual winter golf tournament. Approximately 50 customers, vendors and employees played in the tournament, which for the second straight year benefited Homes for Our Troops. Held outside Houston at Gleannloch Farms Golf Club, Rigid's tournament raised $2,400 for the veterans' organization.

Homes for Our Troops provides residences for the brave young military men and women who suffer significant injuries while defending our freedom. The organization formed after 9/11. Rigid's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing Steve Olson explained, "We felt Homes for Our Troops was a great match. It connected two very important aspects of what Rigid proudly stands for -- construction and giving back to the community. It was an excellent way to get our vendors and customers involved in helping make a difference in the lives of these courageous veterans."

Veterans Administration grants provide a home allowance of $64,960 to some injured veterans. Home costs typically climb well beyond that sum. Because most homes must also be modified to accommodate the injured resident's ability to move about, donors such as Rigid come through for the veterans with additional funds.
