East Hartford, CT – The “official” season of giving has come and gone, but supporting local veterans is always a top priority for KBE Building Corp. That’s why the Wounded Warriors Project recently honored KBE for supplying Thanksgiving dinner to 13 families of veterans.

KBE representatives joined the Chapter 1 Veterans of Korea, Vietnam, and Saudi Wars along with the Disabled American Veterans for a ceremony at the Elks Lodge in Middletown, Conn., last month to receive the award.

“It’s pretty surreal to be honored by actual heroes like these veterans,” commented KBE President and CEO Mike Kolakowski. “We dedicated some money and man hours to support them, but they have truly dedicated their entire lives to support us.”
