The 3rd annual Stanley Build Your America continues the satisfying tradition of giving back to the community. Stanley Build Your America 2016 participants nominate and vote for a USA public charity or private foundation to be one of three grand-prize winners that will receive $10,000, and an assortment of Stanley Black & Decker products valued at $1,000 for use in completing a community project.
To enter, participants describe in 500 characters or less how they would like to honor their community by nominating a charitable organization to receive the grand prize. Stanley encourages participants and nominees to share their stories to drive votes for their projects.
The Stanley Build Your America 2016 grand prize winner for the July entry/nomination period is Active Heroes Retreat Center of Shepherdsville, Kentucky. Active Heroes Retreat Center is where veterans, active duty military, and their families come to heal through outdoor activities.
“Active Heroes is excited to win the first Build Your America contest from Stanley Tools. We will be able to use this cash donation and Stanley tools to help develop our welcome center at the Active Heroes Retreat Center to help thousands of visiting veterans and their families.”
– Troy Yocum, founder of Active Heroes
The third voting period is coming up quickly. We’re pretty sure your community has at least one (if not many) organizations that would benefit from the being named a winner – but it takes you to make the nomination!
