Mark Feb. 23, 2019 on your calendars for the Hearts for Heroes/Renos for Heroes Gala.
Renos for Heroes was founded in November 2009 by Toronto-based contractor Jim Caruk, the well-known host of HGTV’s Real Renos and Handyman Superstar Challenge, in association with volunteer contractors and manufacturers in the Canadian home improvement industry and with the support of the Canadian Armed Forces. Renos for Heros wants to help wounded soldiers to make changes to their homes, minimizing the expense and reducing the stress.
Renovating a home for a disabled person requires more than just installing a wheelchair ramp or lowering a countertop. In many cases, major structural changes must be addressed and special fixtures and equipment brought in. The work can be both expensive and stressful for the occupants.
“Everyone recognizes the sacrifice that our soldiers are making overseas, and the Canadian military takes care of its wounded men and women with great compassion and significant resources,” Caruk said. But there are specialized building skills and materials that the Canadian home improvement industry should be offering, from the grassroots level, to these veterans. That’s what Renos for Heroes is all about.”
The gala is being held Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Universal EventSpace, 6250 Hwy. 7 in Vaughan.
