PHOENIX -- Saying thank you to members of the Armed Forces has never been easier. An event Tuesday night will allow valley folks to show their appreciation to the military, as well as help two veterans get new 'smart homes'.
It all begins with a car, a classic Mustang that's covered in signatures! "This is a Wounded Warriors Family Support Mustang GT500 Super Snake," says Stephanie Jarnagan of Berge Ford. "We're inviting people to come down to Berge Ford tonight between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., and you can sign the Mustang and express your gratitude to members of the Armed Forces and those who have served."
Donations will be welcomed. Sports Clips will also be at the event, giving free haircuts for donations, and also free haircuts to active duty military members and veterans.
"The Mustang is on a 60-city tour across 48 states," says Jarnagan. "Ultimately, it will be auctioned off to build two 'smart homes' for two Wounded Warriors and their families.
"Combined with Southwest Ambulance, Rural Metro and PMT, we have more than 100 vets who work for our first responder agencies," says Katie Reeve of Rural Metro. "So we are huge supporters of our veterans and active military. So we made a donation to the project, and we're hosting the Super Snake at our facility between 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., so first responders, come on out!"
Through the High Five Tour 2013, Wounded Warriors Family Support has pledged $500K toward building two “smart homes” for deserving wounded warriors and their families in Fayetteville, N.C., and Guthrie, Okla. But the tour is coming to an end in November, so every dollar count.
