HHN Winners of the Mike Alstott Community Grant

We are excited to announce we were the winners of the 2012 Mike Alstott Family Foundation Community Grant. After being selected as one of ten "finalists," the Mike Alstott Family Foundation posted a contest on their Facebook page for fans to "vote" for their favorite charity to win the grant. Fans could vote once a day, every day until the end of the contest on October 15th at 11:55 pm.

Let's just say, you guys did NOT disappoint! For two weeks fans voted on Facebook and urged their friends to do the same. On October 16, 2012, HHN had the most votes at 1712, 381 votes higher than the second place charity!

The Mike Alstott Family Foundation will be awarding the grant to HHN to use towards our Welcome Home, Hero program, which provides financial assistance to military families of wounded service members injured in Iraq or Afghanistan since 9/11/01 to use towards basic necessities, including food, shelter, and clothing.

"We will now be able to help up to an additional 20 families," said HHN Executive Director, Stacey Spiegel. "That's just incredible. We at HHN and the service members we help are so grateful to our supporters and the Mike Alstott Family Foundation."
