Operation FINALLY HOME “Notes of Love” Event Held for Local Veteran

Operation FINALLY HOME “Notes of Love” Event Held for Local Veteran
  • Save

Operation FINALLY HOME, in partnership with H-E-B, Verturo Interests, and the City of McAllen, hosted an event called “Notes of Love” for U.S. Marine Corps Corporal Miguel Simental and his family on Thursday, May 30th at the job site of the mortgage-free home being built for them. Operation Finally Home is a nationally recognized non-profit organization with a mission of providing mortgage-free homes to wounded veterans and their families. The “Notes of Love” event is a tradition when the framing stage of the home for its veterans is reached.

Guests at the Notes of Love event were given colored permanent markers that they used to write their best wishes and share their thoughts and expressions of gratitude and love for Miguel and his family. The concept is to cover the walls and studs in the home with notes of love before the walls are sealed—a comforting thought for the veteran and his family, knowing these “notes of love” will forever surround them.

The Simental family was surprised with the news that they were receiving a custom-built, mortgage-free home during a special groundbreaking ceremony on April 25th. The family was led to believe they were going to an interview with Operation FINALLY HOME and a builder, but instead were greeted by a crowd of cheering supporters at the site of their future home at Las Villas Del Rio at The Groves on Shary in McAllen, Texas.

The home, which is generously being built by Verturo Construction, is made possible by many organizations. H-E-B, as part of Operation Appreciation, is contributing time, talent, and financial support for the build. Since 2013, H-E-B and the H-E-B Tournament of Champions have helped provide 26 mortgage-free homes to those in need. The City of McAllen waived several building-related fees. In addition, a large grant was awarded for this project from the McAllen Housing Finance Corporation.
