BENEFITING: HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION OF RALEIGH-WAKE COUNTY CHARITABLE COR

EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2010

HOURS PLEDGED: 1,000

THE STORY:

The mission of this project is to aid a local military service member
who was severely wounded in combat, by helping his/her family live the
American Dream of owning their own home-thus the creation of Operation:
Coming Home.

In 2008, Royal Oaks Building Group, Atreus Homes, and Gaines and Company
built a new home for SGT Joey Bozik, a wounded soldier of the 16th
Military Police, who was injured in Iraq. This project provided SGT
Bozik with a home that was custom built to his precise needs due to his
combat injuries. It was equipped with zero threshold floors, wider
doorways, custom shower, special ramps, sprinkler system, and a custom
kitchen with appliances set to accommodate someone in a wheelchair.

This project started with a groundbreaking ceremony on May 30, 2008 in
the Southern Oaks subdivision of Fuquay-Varina, NC where Gaines and
Company had donated the land. This wonderful new Hero Home was completed
on October 27, 2008 with a huge military-style Extreme Makeover event
called Operation: Coming Home's Alive Day. The Alive Day Ceremony began
with a parade and military performances, and the keys to the home were
parachuted and presented to the Bozik family by the Army Black Daggers,
a Special Forces Parachute Team. In attendance were all the local media
outlets, active duty military personnel, Senator Elizabeth Dole,
Fuquay-Varina public service personnel, numerous military veterans, and
the general public. See the video below for an overview of that day.

We are looking for companies to once again support a recently wounded
Soldier/Marine through Operation Coming Home II. All throughout this
project we seek to use the highest standards reflected by the men and
women serving in our proud country. We'd like to further discuss this
opportunity and your involvement.
