Lubbock Texas based Abuelo's Mexican restaurant's recent Veteran's Day promotion, Queso for Heroes, raised $8,500 for Homes for Our Troops, a non-profit organization that builds mortgage-free, specially adapted homes for severely injured Veterans nationwide.

"We owe so much to our Veterans, and we're very pleased to be able to give back to those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. We are thankful to our guests and team members for helping us raise these funds."

Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of these Veterans have sustained life-altering injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. Since its founding in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar donated to HFOT has gone directly to program services for Veterans. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives http://www.hfotusa.org/.
