Rebuilding Together and Sears will provide critical home repairs for two veterans living in the Miami Gardens neighborhood. More than 75 volunteers will provide various interior repairs, including window and door replacement, retiling, appliances replacement, cabinet and countertop installation and more as part of the Heroes at Home program.
 
Heroes at Home, created through a partnership between Sears and Rebuilding Together, is a national program designed to assist low-income members of the military, their families and veterans with the home repairs and needed modifications. Since the inception of the program in 2007, more than $23 million has been raised for Heroes at Home, and veteran’s services. Through over 1,700 projects, nearly 42,000 volunteers have donated 333,000 hours to support veterans and their families through critical repairs to veteran’s homes and nonprofit facilities that serve them.
 
Kurt and Gene are available for live interviews to discuss the Heroes at Home program and how Americans can give back in their communities. Veterans Leonard and Ronald will share their own personal experiences and what a newly updated home means for them and their families.
 
Now through August 4, Sears is encouraging customers to give back to the men and women who served our country by donating to Heroes at Home at their local Sears store or via online at a link at sears.com/heroesathome.
