Sears Heroes at Home Team Up with Rebuilding Together to Renovate Home for Air Force Veteran & Son
Sears Heroes at Home and Rebuilding Together teamed up for the sixth year to improve the lives of America’s military families, including several in the Philadelphia area. In honor of Memorial Day, volunteers from Rebuilding Together Philadelphia and the Sears Heroes at Home program will complete the renovation of the home of U.S. Air Force veteran Curtis Reed and his son, U.S. Army Veteran Robert Reed.
Air Force veteran Curtis Reed served in Japan and after WWII, he returned to Pennsylvania to work at the Willow Grove Naval Base. Curtis has lived in his home for over 40 years, where he raised his children and grandchildren alongside his wife, who passed away six years ago. Curtis and his son Robert still live in the same house, which now serves as home to three generations. Robert’s son, Hanif Reed, is the caretaker for his father and grandfather and lives there part-time. Their aging home is full of memories and is in need of renovations and repairs. Renovations will include floor installation, painting, landscaping, and more. WTXF FOX 29′s, Steve Keeley covered this special story in Philly.
Sears just launched the sixth year of Heroes at Home, which has raised nearly $17 million. Curtis’ 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
