R E A L E S TAT E Local Businesses Partner to Support Operation Finally Home Operation FINALLY HOME and a number of local businesses are in the early stages of planning to honor a military hero with a mortgage-free home in Culpeper, Virginia. The nonprofit organization provides mortgage-free homes to wounded, ill and injured veterans and widows of the fallen as well as home modifications for injured veterans at no cost. To date, Operation FINALLY HOME has over 250 projects in 33 states which have been completed, under construction or planning. CTS Properties, a client of Long & Foster Real Estate agent Jackie Hitchcock, got involved with the project through the Structural Building Component Association of the Capital Area (SBCACap), which represents manufacturers of engineered floor, wall and roof structural components. “The Washington chapter of the SBCA has wanted to participate in this cause for some time,” said Ken-
ny Shifflett, who co-owns CTS Properties with Stacie Shifflett. “They’ve been holding charity golfing events for the last few years to help raise money to purchase a lot for the home.” CTS Properties owns a number of lots in the Rillhurst Estates community in Culpeper and is donating a portion of the cost of one of its lots to the cause. Shifflett said Gene Frogale, president of SBCACap, has been the driving force behind the project and in asking members of SBCACap to donate services and materials. The builder of record for the home will be Anthony Clatterbuck of Graystone Homes, who has been building homes in the Culpeper area for more than 20 years. On July 15, Hitchcock and CTS Properties will host a barbecue and open house at Rillhurst Estates to promote the charity project and the new homes community. Representatives from SBCACap, Graystone
Homes and Jefferson Home Builders will be in attendance. Operation FINALLY HOME, which is based in Texas, also hopes to have a representative at the event. Local community members are welcome to come out to learn about the project. Shifflett said they are encouraging other homebuilding trades who are interested in getting involved to come out as well. “Operation FINALLY HOME is a fantastic organization, and we’re so thankful to the SBCA and SBCACap for leading this effort,” Hitchcock said. “Supporting military families and veterans has been one of Long & Foster’s primary philanthropic focuses, so this is a cause that resonates with us as a company and one that I am pleased to support.” As the project is still in its early stages, there is still much to be done. The build team along with Operation FINALLY HOME will plan a town hall meeting to determine what do-
nations can be expected from trades and suppliers, and then will work to raise funds to cover any additional costs not covered by donations before holding a groundbreaking and other events.
