The Craftsman "Make A Difference" Tour, together with sponsors Sears Heroes at Home and Rebuilding Together, and its 36-foot trailer filled with the newest and most innovative Craftsman tools, motored into town to make much needed repairs to the Sturgis Veterans' Club, including plumbing and electrical work, bathroom renovations, landscaping, painting and more.

The Craftsman brand united more than 50 volunteers from the Craftsman Club, a part of the Shop Your Way Network, the American Legion and members of the Harley Owners Group (HOG) to roll up their sleeves to give back to the rally's host city. To further demonstrate the Craftsman brand's dedication and commitment to our military veterans, the brand has pledged to donate $10,000 to nonprofit Rebuilding Together through Sears Heroes at Home, a program to support military service members and their families, to aid in future military veteran home renovation projects.
