Core Brands extends collaboration with Gary Sinise Foundation and the R.I.S.E. Program
Home entertainment and control technology manufacturer Core Brands has extended its current collaboration with Gary Sinise Foundation and its R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment) program. The collaboration allows Core Brands to provide the R.I.S.E. program with smart home control, audio, and power management products for the construction of smart homes for wounded veterans.
“The team at Core Brands is honored to be supporting the Sinise Foundation’s R.I.S.E. program,” Core Brands President Joe Roberts said in a statement. “We are particularly grateful to the elite team of Core Brands integrators who are outfitting these homes with ELAN control systems supported by our power and audio brands. These homes make a significant addition to the independence and mobility of these brave Americans who have sacrificed so much, and we look forward to working on many more homes with Gary Sinise Foundation.”
The Sinise Foundation developed the R.I.S.E. program to provide wounded veterans and their families the necessary tools and resources to help them “overcome their new life challenges.” The program offers home modifications, adapted vehicles, wheelchairs and trackchairs, as well as newly-constructed and specially adapted custom smart homes.
“Home is more than a house. It’s literally where we take comfort from the world,” Gary Sinise Foundation Executive Director Judith Otter said in a statement. “The contribution being made by Core Brands will help to put 21st century smart home technology at the fingertips of some of the bravest Americans to have ever answered the nation’s call to serve.”
