Community Spotlight: Habitat for Humanity Honors Veterans with Legacy of Valor Repair Projects


BRADENTON – Manatee Habitat and four regional Habitat affiliates have announced the launch of a yearlong project in partnership with the Legacy of Valor campaign, honoring the service and sacrifice of veterans and their families. During the year, each of the five Habitat affiliates will complete a home repair project for a veteran in need in their respective communities. The Manatee Habitat Legacy of Valor Repair project is scheduled for this fall and will assist a local veteran homeowner with much-needed roof repair.


Legacy of Valor is a campaign that rallies our community to honor veterans, inspire patriotism and embrace freedom. A mosaic of community-driven partnerships will educate, build enthusiasm and focus the community to use time, talent and treasure to recognize the service and sacrifice of all veterans throughout the campaign and beyond.
