Grant to help JSO officers through Homes for Heroes

The Fraternal Order of Police recently received a $5,000 grant, through the efforts of the Florida Homes Realty real estate Saunier team, to help two Jacksonville Sheriff’s officers wounded in the line of duty.

Homes For Heroes is the largest nationwide network of affiliate real estate specialists and local business affiliates committed to providing easy ways for heroes of our nation to save on a home. Heroes include, police, firefighters, EMS, military (active, reserve, veteran), health care workers, and teachers.

Shortly after 9/11, Homes for Heroes was established to give back to heroes for all they do.
To expand the circle of giving, Homes for Heroes, Inc. donates a portion of its earnings to the Homes for Heroes Foundation. Every time a hero buys or sells a home they are helping heroes in need.

On March 31, 2018, the Saunier team is sponsoring a Homes for Heroes fundraiser by selling sideline tickets to the Jacksonville Iceman Hockey Game at a great price for a good cause. Hockey for Heroes is a special part of the Saunier team all year. Five dollars of each ticket sold will go to the Homes for Heroes Foundation.

“We still have a few tickets to give away to Heroes,” said Janet Saunier. ‘We want to support our Heroes, who help every day, but particularly in the wake of Hurricane Irma, which impacted Jacksonville.

“We want to thank all first responders who really went above and beyond,” said Saunier. “Hockey with a Hero was created to give all of us a voice to share our Hero Story, to give thanks to those heroes in our community who continue to give so selflessly,” she added.
