A Home for a Hero

Home for a hero

On Friday, April 22nd, Planet Central client Tilson Homes once again handed over the keys to a new home they partnered with Operation Finally Home to build.

 

Operation FINALLY HOME is a charitable organization which honors wounded, ill and injured veterans and widows of fallen soldiers with new mortgage-free homes. The Fort Bend County, Texas home is the 101st mortgage-free home built by the organization, and the fifth home Tilson has built with them.

 

Planet Central worked closely with Tilson Homes, Operation Finally Home, and build partner Classic Chevrolet of Sugarland to organize and manage multiple events leading up to Friday’s dedication. Other events for the build included a surprise ceremony at a Sugarland Skeeters baseball game where the family was notified that they had been chosen to receive the new home, a ground breaking event at the home site, and the “notes of love” community event.

 

Throughout the build, Planet Central helped to organize and manage photography for multiple events engaging the local media and public including a ground breaking, “notes of love” and Friday’s planned dedication. Social media was used to keep the Tilson Homes community up to date with news and events surrounding the build. The “notes of love” event was particularly inspiring as it invited the community to visit the home during the framing stage and write messages of support on the framework.

 

We are honored to be able to help our generous client with such a noble cause, and are grateful for the work that Operation Finally Home does for veterans.
