George Brazil Services Donates A/C Install to
Building Homes For Heroes Veteran Recipient –
HOMECOMING EVENT

 

Peoria, AZ – This Thursday, July 3rd from 11 am-12:30 pm, there will be a homecoming ceremony for US Army Specialist USMC Lance Corporal Eduardo Fuentes-Bueno. A newly remodeled home in Peoria, AZ is being gifted to Fuentes-Bueno through the Building Homes For Heroes nationwide organization. Chase Financial donates the home, while all of the remodeling and utility upgrades have been donated by local businesses. George Brazil Services donated the A/C team to install the new York Affinity A/C unit donated by US Air Conditioning Distributors. “The decision to participate in the Building Homes for Heroes program was an easy one to make,” said Jim Probst, President/Owner of George Brazil Services. “It’s gratifying to think that we can honor the service of veterans like Eduardo and support their families by providing them with comfortable, air conditioned homes.”

Fuentes-Bueno was injured in Afghanistan by a grenade that struck him leaving shrapnel in his left eye, frontal lobe of his brain, as well as his left and right legs. Since his recovery Building Homes For Heroes has chosen him and his family to receive their next hero project. Fuentes-Bueno is aware of the home being donated, but he has no idea of all of the remodeling and upgrades that have recently been completed on the home. The homecoming ceremony on Thursday will be his first viewing of the home and it will definitely be an emotional event for him and his family.

Building Homes For Heroes has been planning this event and has invited the public, the entire neighborhood surrounding the remodeled home, as well as all vendors and their teams who donated their time and products to this project. Food, beverages, and a patriotic cake will be available to those attending while it lasts. This ceremony is hoped to be a large welcome home to one of our local heroes, kicking off the 4th of July weekend.

Press Note: The ceremony will kick-off with announcements at 11am and the Fuentes-Bueno is planned to arrive around 12pm. Press and photographers will be allowed in the house before Fuentes-Bueno and family, in order to catch the first reaction shots as they enter the home for the first time. Please see Chad Gottlieb or Vicky Liu at the event if you are part of the press or media.
