Tim McGraw Partnering With Chase and Operation Homefront To Give 25 Homes to Vets
Country music superstar Tim McGraw is launching a nationwide program called HomeFront
in partnership with Chase
and Operation Homefront to award mortgage-free homes to wounded warriors and servicemembers in need at each concert of his summer tour. The homes will be donated through Operation Homefront's Homes on the Homefront
McGraw has a long history and deep interest in supporting veterans and military families and wanted to find another way to honor our vets and give back to them for their commitment and service to our country. "My sister’s a veteran of the first Gulf War. My uncle was a Vietnam veteran and my grandfather was a World War II veteran. I've always felt a deep sense of respect and obligation to our troops," says McGraw. "Being able to reward them for their dedicated work with a new home will be even more rewarding for us. It feels so good to give back to them, and to have the opportunity to entertain them on Memorial Day is something I'm honored to do."
"We are grateful to our servicemembers, veterans and their families for their service and sacrifices," said Frank Bisignano, Chief Administrative Officer and Chief Executive Officer of Mortgage Banking at JPMorgan Chase & Co. "We are honored to partner with Tim McGraw and Operation Homefront to award mortgage-free homes. It’s a small way to say thank you to people who have done so much to protect our nation and our freedom."
Chase has committed to provide 100 mortgage-free homes to deserving veterans and their families over the next five years through our Homes on the Homefront program.
On June 2 in Tampa, McGraw will begin what is anticipated to be the biggest stadium tour in country music history. The Brothers of the Sun Tour
with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw will hit the nation's biggest stadiums through August.Watch Tim McGraw share his excitement for this program
