CORT, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, recently helped an Orlando, Florida, veteran and his family get the home of their dreams on the Military Makeover edition of Designing Spaces airing on Lifetime® on October 16 at 7:00 a.m. (ET/PT), a signature women-focused home improvement show that travels all over the country to bring viewers innovative home remodeling, home decorating and home design ideas.
Army veteran, Tommy Travis, and his family were living in a cramped apartment in Orlando. Thanks to Designing Spaces and CORT, the family is now enjoying a three-bedroom, fully furnished home. Earlier this summer, the family was gifted a home by an Orlando retiree who simply wanted to give back to our servicemen and women. With the help of CORT, that house became a home complete with sofas, beds, wall décor, accessories and lighting.
“Designing Spaces was another opportunity for CORT to offer our services to assist military veterans and their families as they go through life transitions,” said Lisa Woodworth, VP of marketing, CORT. “There are so many veterans who made great sacrifices to protect our country, but still need assistance. We are excited and honored for the opportunity to provide our services as the Travis Family transitions into their new home.”
During the episode, CORT’s corporate partner, the Folds of Honor Foundation, presented an educational scholarship to the Travis Family. The Folds of Honor Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a mission to empower deserving military families with educational support by providing educational scholarships for children and spouses of fallen or disabled military service men and women. To date, CORT has donated more than $130,000 in funds and furnishings to the Folds of Honor Foundation to support military families across the country.
This is the third time CORT has partnered with Designing Spaces, previously decorating a newlywed couple’s new home and a student’s first apartment. Designing Spaces airs Thursday and Friday mornings at 7:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on Lifetime®. This particular episode will re-air on December 10.
