Sears Heroes at Home and Rebuilding Together Studs to Roof Build in Sacramento, CA.
Volunteers from Sears Heroes at Home and Rebuilding Together Sacramento came together to for a special “Studs to Roof” project in Sacramento. CA., on July 2nd. The deserving veteran in need was Mr. Aguirre, who served from 1944 – 1946 during World War II and was present at the Battle of Iwo Jima. Mr. Aguirre and his wife have lived in their home and neighborhood for close to 50 years. The Aguirres have always been charitable, giving clothes to strangers in need and supporting a maternity home for unwed mothers, among other things.
Mr. Aguirre is now caring for his disabled wife and would like to remain in his home for the rest of their years. He had tears in his eyes when his son-in-law told him about Rebuilding Together and is very moved to be receiving assistance.
Thanks to the Heroes at Home grant, Rebuilding Together provided a new wheelchair ramp, a new accessible bathroom, a new window and exterior door and other home improvements.
Sears just launched the sixth year of Heroes at Home, which has raised nearly $17 million. The Aguirres renovation is one of the hundreds of projects that can be made possible through generous consumer donations both in-store and online at Sears. Now through July 27, Sears is encouraging consumers to consider giving back to the men and women who serve our country by donating funds to Heroes at Home at their local Sears store or via a link online at sears.com/heroesathome
