[GOODYEAR, ARIZONA] – Purple Heart Homes, in partnership with FOX Sports and FOX Tech, completed a renovation project for Stephen Huth, a United States Air Force veteran who served in Vietnam and Korea.

As a tribute to the veteran’s service to our nation, Purple Heart Homes, FOX Sports, and FOX Tech will be hosting a Mission Complete Ceremony on Friday, February 10th at 10:00am leading up to Super Bowl weekend. The event will celebrate the veteran’s service and officially welcome him home.
“We are so grateful for the support of FOX Sports and FOX Tech in helping us serve our military veterans,” said John Gallina, Co-Founder and CEO of Purple Heart Homes. “This project would not have been possible without our partners’ generosity and dedication to giving back to those who have served our country.”
