Building a Home for Our Hero in CT

This fall, Connecticut Stone, in partnership with Building Homes for Heroes, teamed up to build a home for a disabled veteran of the war in Afghanistan. Sergeant Greg Caron was serving in the Marine Corps when an IED exploded – he lost both of his legs, and his right arm was severely wounded. Caron’s medical team was able to save his arm, but he still does not have full function of his arm.

Caron’s family was selected by Building Homes for Heroes, a national non-profit organization that builds mortgage-free homes for severely wounded men and women of the military forces. Local partners donated their time and materials for the Caron’s new home in Ellington, CT.

Connecticut Stone donated over $7,000 in Sage Brush Granite countertops in the Caron’s new gourmet kitchen, which was installed by Paul Vizzo, owner and operator of New England Carpentry.

On behalf of the entire Connecticut Stone team, we would like to welcome the Caron family into their new home for the holidays. Our hope is to continue to support Building Homes for Heroes throughout the years. Thank you and congratulations to all of the organizations that donated their time and expertise to make the Caron’s home as beautiful and functional as possible for them.
