Rothschild, WI (April 2010) – Wausau Homes is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a bang. For every home sold between now and the Fourth of July, the Midwest builder will donate $2,000 to Operation Homefront, a well known national support group for America's military families.

Wausau Homes announced the contribution as a meaningful way to celebrate its 50th year building homes in America’s Heartland. All Wausau Homes’ builders throughout the Midwest will celebrate the anniversary with a Grand Reopening Open House on April 10 for people to learn more about Wausau Homes and their partnership with Operation Homefront. Local homebuilders will offer refreshments, design center tours, American flag pins and a variety of other activities.

"We wanted to do something special for our 50th anniversary beyond the ribbon cutting and cake," explains Jay Schuette, co-president of Wausau Homes. "We decided to celebrate freedom and say ‘thanks’ to our troops by supporting an organization that watches over their families while they are serving our country."

Operation Homefront, based in San Antonio, Texas, serves military families by providing a safety net of support services ranging from financial assistance and help with everyday problems such as car repair to providing educational and emotional support for the families of wounded warriors (

"The price of peace is paid by the entire military family," said Jim Knotts, president and chief executive officer of Operation Homefront. "Support from great companies like Wausau Homes helps our military families stay strong, and that helps our troops who are in harm’s way to stay focused on their mission. We’re proud to work with Wausau Homes."

Wausau Homes has redefined the building experience by making it stress free with firm pricing, a firm move-in date and a new home customized just the way the buyer wants it. The company has built more than 150,000 homes throughout the Midwest, ranging from starter homes to vacation dream homes. Find a local Wausau Homes builder at
