Officials with Crye-Leike, REALTORS have launched “Red Fridays” by wearing red and specially made buttons which they will be selling to raise money for Operation Homefront.

 

Operation Homefront is a nonprofit group that assists troops and their families.

 

Proceeds from the fundraising will go to Operation Homefront’s Village program, which provides a community where wounded service members and their families can live while the soldiers recover and protects them from losing their houses to foreclosure.

 

The buttons are $3 each and can be purchased from any Crye-Leike office or agent.

 

Dick Leike, co-founder and president of Crye-Leike, said he hopes the public will join in and support the cause as well.

 

“It’s my hope that as our clients and friends see us getting behind a great cause like Operation Homefront, they’ll join us in purchasing buttons and wearing red every Friday too,” Mr. Leike said.
