Meridian Helps Building Dreams for Marines Renovate Home of NH Solider Wounded in Afghanistan
Monday, February 13, 2012
Meridian has started work on a project to help renovate the home of a Marine from Merrimack, NH, who was injured while serving his country in Afghanistan. The project, organized by Building Dreams for Marines, will involve remodeling the kitchen, half-bath, and full-bath of the home. WMUR recently did a piece on this project, which you can view here, as did the Nashua Telegraph, which can be viewed here. For more information on the project, please read the original press release, from Building Dreams for Marines:
8 December, 2011 - Merrimack, NH. Building Dreams for Marines, a New Hampshire-based non-profit organization, has recently approved its first applicant for home renovations. Marine Chuck Donnelly from Merrimack, NH, was serving in Afghanistan when he was injured in an IED attack. As a result, his left leg was amputated from the knee-down.
"These Marines are dealing with a lot of issues when returning from the theater of war, and a life-changing injury like Chuck's only makes it harder," said Brian Hooper, President of Building Dreams for Marines. "By helping these men and women, we are demonstrating our gratitude for their services and hopefully making their lives a little easier."
Mr. Donnelly's home will receive modifications to the kitchen, downstairs half-bath and the upstairs full-bath. These modifications will help Chuck to operate as freely and independently as possible.
