Sunbelt Rentals

Sunbelt Rentals is a major supporter of the Gary Sinise Foundation’s R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence, Supporting Empowerment) program, which provides 100-percent, mortgage-free, specially adapted, custom smart-homes for America’s severely wounded heroes.

Sunbelt Rentals team members joined R.I.S.E. home recipient U.S. Army SFC Caleb Brewer (center) and wife Ashley at their Gary Sinese Foundation home dedication in Tucson, Ariz.

Company activities included sponsoring a series of fundraising campaigns and community outreach efforts. At the 2019 Barrett Jackson auction this January in Phoenix, Ariz., for example, a custom jeep was auctioned off to raise $300,000 for the Foundation. Following the auction, the Sunbelt Rentals team presented Gary Sinise with a $1 million check representing the company’s collective efforts to support R.I.S.E. over the last year.

“We are incredibly thankful to our friends at Sunbelt Rentals,” said Judith Otter, chief operating officer at the Gary Sinise Foundation. “Their ongoing support, passion, and commitment to our R.I.S.E. program has helped change the lives for many of our severely wounded heroes and their families, giving them back the independence they deserve.”

Since January 2016, Sunbelt Rentals has also supported the Gary Sinise Foundation and R.I.S.E. by providing tools and equipment needed for each of the program’s home build projects—at no cost to contractors working on them. In addition, Sunbelt Rentals backs the program by donating a portion of rental proceeds from uniquely branded Gary Sinise Foundation equipment to R.I.S.E.
