Building Homes For Veterans

Tuesday, July 19, 2022

Volunteers of High Desert Medical Group joined the Homes4Families veterans nonprofit building more than 50 homes in Palmdale for veterans otherwise locked out of heated Southern California market.

High Desert Medical Group was recognized as honoree of Homes4Families in 2022, awarded the “Hammer of Hope” award at a gala hosted at the Universal Hilton Hotel.

HDMG fielded a small but mighty team on Saturday, July 16, joined by more volunteers from the Boeing Co., PepsiCo and other corporate community giving leaders.

The volunteers constructed about $10,000 worth of ground improvements to the central Palmdale property before the mercury shot past 100 degrees. It was hard work in the heat, with a premium placed on safety, but good work done by all. HDMG team members were Team Leader Dennis Anderson, Margaret Papa Louey, Thelma Glasco, joined by Navy Veteran Lizeth Robertson of the Vets4Veterans service organization, which HDMG also supports.
