Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
Now in its tenth year, hit home improvement show Designing Spaces is helping those that are most deserving of beautiful new spaces in the special series Designing Spaces of Hope. This month, in a three-part remodel marathon entitled Project Homeward Bound, the Designing Spaces dream team joins forces with Purple Heart Homes, Inc. to provide a veteran and his family with a safer, sounder home. Here at Signature Shutters, we’re proud to say that we contributed to the new home in the best way we know how – with new shutters, of course.
Purple Heart Homes, Inc. matches disabled Purple Heart recipients to donated foreclosed homes. In this case, that Purple Heart recipient is Private First Class Jeffrey Taylor. Jeff was critically injured during the Operation Iraqi Freedom invasion when his crew’s vehicle came under attack just outside the Bagdad Airport and rolled into a canal. PFC Taylor was rescued from underneath the vehicle but left with nerve damage, brain damage, PTSD, hearing loss and a crushed leg. Until recently, the returned soldier along with his wife and three children were living in a cramped, inaccessible mobile home.
Now, the Designing Spaces crew has completely transformed a 2,300 square-foot, ranch-style house in Jacksonville, Fla. donated to the Taylors by Purple Heart Homes, leaving it move-in-ready and handicap accessible. We’re happy to have partnered with the Designing Spaces reno gurus to make this military family’s dream home a reality by donating a full set of shutters and window treatments.
Purple Heart Homes’ co-founder John Gallina said it like this, "We are pleased to have partnered with Designing Spaces to provide Army PFC Jeffery Taylor and his family with the first home they have ever owned that is beautifully decorated, furnished and ready for them to build a future in the community. Jeffery Taylor served our country in Iraq and did not return unharmed. Together we have helped him and his family heal. We wish them every success as they rebuild their lives for the service and sacrifice made on our behalf."
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, John.
The three-part Designing Spaces of Hope: Project Homeward Bound mini-series will air on Lifetime TV on Sept. 25, 26 and 27 at 7:30 p.m. EST.
