The mission of Purple Heart Homes has grown over the past decade with 832 veteran projects since 2009. And with the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks this week, it’s important to highlight the contributions of those who’ve served in our military.

One of the many ways Purple Heart Homes has given back to the Charlotte community has been through providing housing for veterans. There’s also ways you can get involved and help support a great cause. The charity organization is hosting a Fall Golf Classic at Twin Oaks Golf Club in Statesville, N.C. on Oct. 8. Spots in the tournament or sponsorship opportunities are still available.
