Woodside, one of only 14 Southern Living Inspired Communities, is excited to host its very first Southern Living Inspired Home Tour! The tour, which runs weekends from April 21 through May 29, is expected to draw roughly 10,000 visitors over the course of its six weekends. Upon realizing the reach of the Southern Living brand, and the traffic the tour would draw, Woodside instantly recognized the potential this tour had to make a huge positive impact on charitable organizations. For that reason, with the help of Woodside’s own Women of Woodside, three charities were selected to split all proceeds from the Southern Living Inspired Home Tour. Read on below to learn more about a charity dedicated to supporting veterans and their families, Operation FINALLY HOME:

Operation FINALLY HOME is a national nonprofit organization that addresses one of the most pressing needs of our returning troops- a home to call their own. This organization’s mission is to provide custom-built, mortgage-free homes to wounded, ill and injured veterans, the widows of the fallen and their families, creating a solid foundation for them to move forward in their lives. By removing the financial burden of a mortgage and providing accomodations tailored to a veteran’s special needs, our heroes and their families can rebuild their lives with less worry. They can move around their home with ease, focus on developing a fulfilling career, and spend valuable time with their children.

To accomplish this important mission, Operation FINALLY HOME partners with national and local corporate sponsors, builder associations, builders, developers, individual contributors, and volunteers in local communities across the United States.
