Purple Heart Homes Builds Tiny Home Onsite at Charlotte Motor Speedway for Housing-Challenged Veteran in Honor of a Gold Star Family

Purple Heart Homes is building a tiny home onsite at the Charlotte Motor Speedway during the week and weekend of the Coca Cola 600. The initiative is part of our efforts to provide affordable housing to veterans in need, especially those facing challenges such as disabilities, aging, and homelessness.

Through the Patriot Family Military Foundation, Purple Heart Homes was connected with the Masear Family, a Gold Star Family. In honor of Jake’s life and dedication to service, the Masear Family raised funds for the Charlotte Motor Speedway tiny home build. The veteran who receives the tiny home will be able to live comfortably and independently, with the necessary support and resources, thanks to the Masear Family and their honorable remembrance of Jake’s life.

The tiny home will be fully equipped with modern amenities, including a kitchen, bathroom, living room, and bedroom, all built to maximize space and efficiency. The home will provide a safe and comfortable environment for the veteran, allowing them to live with dignity and respect.

FOX Sports and the NASCAR Race Hub team will be volunteering on Wednesday and Thursday, alongside Purple Heart Homes, to build the tiny home. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, a limited number of volunteer spots will be available to the general public for the tiny home build.
