Cerro Wire LLC donates building wire for good cause in Minnesota

Cerro Wire LLC announced that the company's NNB residential wire will be used to complete Helping a Hero's latest project in Elysian, Minnesota, where the thousands of donated wire will be used as part of a new home for disabled veteran SPC Jack Zimmerman.

A press release said that Zimmerman lost both of his legs in an IED explosion in Afghanistan and suffered permanent damage to his right arm. He and his wife Megan are expecting their first child any day now, and Helping A Hero wanted them to have a new home for that arrival. The organization, it noted, builds specially adapted homes for severely injured military personnel and their families that have features such as wider doors, lower counters and roll-in showers that allow returning heroes to maintain their independence
and adjust to the new circumstances of their disabilities. Steffens Electric will oversee the construction of the home.

"Cerro Wire is proud to be a part of this project," said Dale Crawford, director of marketing and value development at Cerrowire's Electrical Distribution Division. "SPC Zimmerman has sacrificed so much for his country, and we are honored to give back to him in whatever way we can. We are so thankful that the Rouzer Group and Viking Electric invited us to participate in Helping a Hero's important mission, and we hope our high-quality wire will help make this home a comfortable place for SPC Zimmerman and his family."
