Save the Date! Ground will be broken at 10am Saturday, September 24th on the new home to be built by Highland Homes, and the many sub- contractors that have been major contributors for this worthy project. It would not be possible to start this home without the Texas Sentinel Foundation, Hillwood Development Corp, Prime Lending and the Collin County Association of Realtors, as well as many real estate companies, title companies, mortgage companies and other affiliate members of the Collin County Association of Realtors.
The new, mortgage free home will be built for Army Sgt. Justin Feagin, who was severely injured in Afghanistan in July, 2010. He, his wife Kayla, and three year old son, Tyler, will get a fresh start near their family and friends in north Collin County.
The ground ceremony will be a joyous occasion, at 2308 Patriot Drive, Melissa, TX, with many dignitaries, city, county and state political leaders in attendance.
The Texas Sentinel Foundation chairman for the Collin County Team, Mal Smith, reported on additional fundraising and financial news, saying, “We’ve just learned that Republic Title’s $10-per-closing donation, in Collin County, generated nearly $2,200 in July alone, and that will continue through August.”
“Also, Aaron Graham, vice president of Highland Homes has reported that with the significant additional donations and commitments by suppliers and sub-contractors and with anticipated funds with events that are still planned, we feel comfortable in starting the home on September 24th.
Local businesses continue to join the fundraising effort, most recently Mixed Bag Designs, who announced that 40% of sales revenue through October 1, 2011 will go to the Texas Sentinels Foundation and Justin’s new home. Simply enter code 67870 in the Fundraiser ID field when ordering any of the totes, bags, stationery, iPhone bags, laptop cases, or other items from www.mixedbagdesign.com or place order with Terri at CCAR (1-972-265-4222).
Justin Feagin was severely wounded, losing his left foot, shattering his right ear drum and suffering broken bones and lacerations while leading an Afghan Police Border Patrol. He had been awarded numerous commendations and medals including the Purple Heart.
