Military Makeover!!

Operation Phinizy Family!

We were so honored and proud to be a part of this amazing show as well as giving back to this extraordinary family!

“North American Van Lines is Military Makeover’s Official Moving Partner. We can’t even start without them: they show up early and then work hard, professionally packing, moving and managing all the family’s belongings. Their well-trained team members work quickly and efficiently without damaging the belongings or the home they are working in. They brought in their local team, from Melbourne, FL once again with innovative new, on-site moving and storage ideas. Another way they turned a hard job into a great experience. A pleasure to work with and always first in on our makeovers.”

Gary Sinise Foundation

Since Veterans Day was the other day, we want to take a minute to highlight a North American® partner making a big impact on Our Nation’s veterans. North American proudly became the official moving partner of the Gary Sinise Foundation in 2014, and what an amazing and inspiring experience it has been! 

In 2011, Gary Sinise established the Gary Sinise Foundation with a mission to serve and honor our nation’s defenders, veterans, first responders and their families. Sinise believes as citizens, supporting the heroes of our nation is a responsibility each of us must carry. The Gary Sinise Foundation does just that through a variety of programs, and works to ensure the sacrifices of America’s defenders and their families are never forgotten.  For more than a decade, Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band have toured the globe in support of our troops. The band aims to raise spirits and awareness for military and first responder causes worldwide.  Through the foundation’s Invincible Spirit Festivals, the team is boosting the morale at military medical centers across the country. The daylong celebrations provide an escape from the rigors of rehabilitation for the hospital’s patients, staff and families.  The Relief & Resiliency Outreach program is providing complete support to those recovering from trauma, injury and loss during times of urgent need.  

The Sinise Foundation is also providing financial support and training to America’s firefighters, police departments and EMTs through its First Responders Outreach program.  Serving Heroes is a program providing hearty, classic American meals to our defenders across the country.  The Arts & Entertainment Outreach program now includes the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago and the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. Each theatre provides dinner and a performance to local veterans free of charge.  In 2012, the Gary Sinise Foundation began building specially adapted custom smart homes for American veterans that have suffered life-altering injuries through its partner program. Each home is designed to meet the needs of the specific service member recipient and their family, and features automated amenities to ease the daily challenges these heroes face. In 2013, the Gary Sinise Foundation expanded these efforts by establishing its R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment) program.

In 2015, the Gary Sinise Foundation launched Soaring Valor with The National WWII Museum.  The program provides WWII veterans a chance to visit the museum and documents their first-hand accounts of the war for future generations.  The Gary Sinise Foundation mission to never stop serving our nation’s heroes and families is deep rooted and continues to make a difference with new and existing programs. For more information, head to the Gary Sinise website or check out this video about the organization.

“The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.”– President Calvin Coolidge

What is Military Makeover??

About Military Makeover:

The men and women of our Military risk everything to protect our country’s freedom and our way of life. But who protects them when they return? Who supports them, helps them in their time of need and gives them hope for the future?

From the producers of the award-winning home decorating and remodeling show, Designing Spaces, comes a very special mini-series dedicated to giving back to members of our Military and their loved ones. Enlisting the help of decorators, designers, landscapers and other home renovation experts, our host, retired United States Marine Corps Staff Sergeant R. Lee Ermey “The Gunny”, helps transform the homes – and the lives – of military families across the country.

Whether it’s a veteran and their loved ones, a wounded warrior or a newly relocated military family, this mini-series salutes those that have risked the ultimate sacrifice, offering hope and a helping hand right here on the home front.
