The Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) empowers veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations. The Foundation, along with CBS Radio and their home improvement partners, including Nolan Painting, teamed up to present “Hero’s Home” – the rebuilding of U.S. Army veteran Jack MacIntosh’s home.
WHO IT BENEFITS:
Jack MacIntosh is a U.S. Army veteran who served in combat during the Gulf War, where he was injured in the line of duty. Jack experienced significant hardship from the effects of battle during the Gulf War, and to make matters worse, his home experienced significant damage from Hurricane Sandy. Nolan Painting donated a complete preparation and painting of the entire interior and exterior (including power washing) of the MacIntosh home.
WHEN & WHERE:
The home renovation took place over the first few months of 2017. A ribbon cutting and official unveiling was held on Tuesday, April 25th at the MacIntosh home in Feasterville, Bucks County.
In 2007, 1st Lt Travis Manion (USMC) was killed in Iraq while saving his wounded teammates. Today, Travis’ legacy lives on in the words he spoke before leaving for his final deployment, “If Not Me, Then Who…” Guided by this mantra, veterans continue their service, develop strong relationships with their communities, and thrive in their post-military lives. As a result, communities prosper and the character of our nation’s heroes lives on in the next generation. The mission aligns with the Nolan in the Neighborhood community giving program.
