Purple Heart Homes and FOX 46 TV station in Charlotte, teamed up this fall to build a home for Angela Cherico, an honorably discharged veteran and North Carolina native who had fallen on hard times.
The community rallied to support the construction of Cherico’s future home in Denver, N.C., about 25 miles north of Charlotte, according to GroundBreak Carolinas.
Wayne Brothers heard the cry for help and donated about 50 cubic yards of concrete and 200 man-hours to place and finish the concrete foundation. The company also onboarded its client, Carocon, to donate blocks, sand, and mortar for the masonry foundation.
The home should be move-in ready by Christmas.
