Cargill Beef is donating $100,000 to the Homes for Our Troops program.
The company will formally donate the money Saturday during a ceremony presenting a new specially adapted home near Cheney Lake to former U.S. Marine Sgt. Matt Amos and his family.
The Homes for Our Troops program helped fund a home for Amos, an Andale native who lost his legs serving in Afghanistan. The Wichita Area Builders Association facilitated the project.
Amos will participate as a representative for Homes for Our Troops in an 18-month program the Cargill ground beef business is making available to retailers nationwide to raise money for the program.
