Tim McGraw Launches Program To Give Military Families Free Homes

BIG MACHINE RECORDS artist TIM MCGRAW has launched a new program called HOMEFRONT, an organization that gives mortgage-free homes to military families. He has partnered up with CHASE, ACM LIFTING LIVES and the non-profit OPERATION HOMEFRONT.
MCGRAW has been a huge supporter of the U.S. military and wanted to find more ways to honor the veterans and give back to them for their service. HOMEFRONT has given away 18 homes to military families so far, and plans to continue giving as many homes away as possible. The ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC (ACM) has donated $125,000 to HOMEFRONT so that military families can purchase what they need for their new homes.
“TIM has always been dedicated to the military, and he always gives shout outs to us and he just supports us in everything that he can do,” said HOMEFRONT home recipient SGT. ANTHONY HODGE. “It’s just like he understands us. This new home is a dream come true, and will definitely allow us to start fresh for a happier life.”
“Our military families answer a call to action every day, and OPERATION HOMEFRONT gives civilians an opportunity to give back to them. I consider it an honor to partner with LIFTING LIVES, CHASE and OPERATION HOMEFRONT on this initiative to help these heroes,” said MCGRAW. “Anyone can make a donation -- small or large -- to support this effort, and we also hope to spread the word to military families that they are invited to apply for help, if they need it.”
