Funding will go towards completion of a recreational and therapeutic park for wounded warriors and their families.
Christmas just got a little brighter for Returning Heroes Home as the non-profit organization seeks additional funding to complete a $3.4 million, six-acre recreational and therapeutic park to serve wounded warriors and their families.
The nonprofit received a $50,000 gift from TETCO and the Turner family, who presented the check to Returning Heroes Home during the company’s Christmas party Dec. 16 at the Westin La Cantera hotel.
“Returning Heroes Home is especially grateful to TETCO and the Turner family for their unwaivering support of our mission,” said Steve Huffman, president of Returning Heroes Home. “Their financial support has helped us make a tremendous, positive impact in the lives of thousands of wounded warriors and their families. Because of the continued support that the Turner family has provided us since 2007, we plan to dedicate the Administrative Offices in the Warrior and Family Support Center in their honor.”
To date, TETCO has donated $220,000 to Returning Heroes Home.
“My grandfather, Tom Turner Sr., instilled a patriotic spirit in my entire family, so we have always been huge supporters of the military, and we are grateful to those troops who go abroad during times of war and risk their lives every day to ensure that we enjoy peace and freedom at home,” said Jon Turner, TETCO vice chairman.
TETCO is a San Antonio-based company, owned and operated by the Tom Turner family for more than 60 years. C-store operations, construction and equipment sales, fuel system sales and service, petrochemical distribution, and environmental engineering are the company’s primary revenue sources, with significant interests in oil and gas exploration, real-estate development, paving and utility construction.
