Supporting our Veterans – An UpdateThis year, Southland Insulators is proud to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. In lieu of a large celebration, we decided to make two special donations back to the community.
Our team made a donation to The Independence Fund to purchase an Action Track Chair for a wounded veteran. We are pleased to share an update about the donation to The Independence Fund. We recently learned that the Action Track Chair donated by Southland Insulators was received by an Army Corporal named Bret. Bret was injured in 2011 in Afghanistan.
In addition, we worked with Castlewood Builders and the Gary Sinise Foundation to insulate a new home for Captain Luis Avila, a veteran who was severely injured in service to our country. ON Veteran’s Day, there will be a special ribbon cutting for the Gary Sinise Foundation for Captain Luis Avila’s new home. We can’t think of a better way to honor our Veterans.

Congratulations to Bret and to Captain Avila. God Speed to them and their families.
