FAR Joins in Home Donation to Wounded Veteran

The Florida Association of REALTORS®, in partnership with the Military Warriors Support Foundation, donated a house to a wounded Florida veteran and his family. Retired Army Sgt. Michael Burke, his wife Nichole, and two children were presented with a newly remodeled, mortgage-free home in Port St. Lucie during the association’s “Rally for Homeownership” at the state capitol in April.

The Florida Association donated $20,000 to provide the family with the three-year financial mentoring they must complete before obtaining the deed to the house. Chase Bank donated the three-bedroom, 1,500-square-foot property and Home Depot handled the renovations. The Military Warriors Support Foundation has coordinated the donation of 300 homes to wounded military veterans nationwide. For more, visit www.militarywarriors.org/openhomes.
