The Granite Group to Support Wounded Warrior Project

CONCORD, N. H. — The Granite Group/The Ultimate Bath accepted and matched donations at its Granite Group Contractor Trade Show on Sept. 25 at the Radisson Hotel in Nashua, N. H., to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

Established in 2001, the Wounded Warrior Project assists and advocates for the most severely wounded, injured and ill soldiers, and their families, throughout their lifetime. The Wounded Warrior T-Shirt Project was the idea of Flip Mullen, a retired firefighter, of Rockaway, N.Y. After the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the crash of American Airlines Flight 587 devastated the N. Y. peninsula, a group of lawyers, accountants, firefighters, stockbrokers and police officers decided that they could use their talents to help heal some of the wounds that tried to break a spirited community.

“The donations raised are used to directly benefit these brave men and women by providing programs and services specifically developed for their unique needs,” says Mike Mullaney, director of marketing of The Granite Group.

Those attending the show who donated $20 or more received a Wounded Warrior Project T-shirt. All donations of $20 or more will be matched 100 percent by The Granite Group/Ultimate Bath.

The Granite Group is one of the top 50 plumbing, heating and PVF wholesale distributors in the United States. The company has nearly 400 employees throughout its 26 locations serving all of the New England states and Eastern New York.

This matching donation program is a nice way to generate awareness about the Wounded Warrior Project and all of the good that it does for critically injured and ill soldiers and their families.
