Chris Kuran, Founder and President of Waterstone Faucets, announced that the Murrieta-based company will be donating kitchen faucets and accessories to each new home built by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The Tunnel to Tower Foundation, in partnership with the Gary Sinise Foundation, Building for America’s Bravest, donates smart homes for America’s most disabled veterans. Going forward, each new home built, will feature Waterstone kitchen faucet suites and accessories.
The Building for America’s bravest project is dear to Waterstone’s President Chris Kuran’s heart. As a U.S. Naval Academy graduate and former US Marine Corps officer, Mr. Kuran continues to serve his country through Waterstone’s donation to wounded veterans. Since Mr. Kuran founded Waterstone in 1999, they have grown into one of the leading high end kitchen faucet manufactures. Each faucet is designed, engineered and made in America. “Waterstone is fueled by the faith that we are building a lasting company that truly cares about its customers,” said Mr. Kuran. “Our employees are redefining pride in American Ingenuity every day. We are proud that our donation will honor our countries most disabled veterans, and will help ease their difficulties as they return to civilian life.”
The first home to feature Waterstone Faucets was dedicated on Veteran’s Day this year in Jefferson City, Missouri. Marine Corps CPL Tyler Huffman was paralyzed after being shot in Afghanistan by a sniper in December 2010. He, and his wife and young son, were excited to move into a new smart home custom designed to CPL Huffman’s needs. Currently, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Tower Foundation and the Gary Sinise Foundation have partnered for fifteen homes to be built, three have been completed to date. A Waterstone Kitchen faucet suite has been provided to each of the three homes and will be donated to each of the remaining projects.
