The Airpower Foundation, in collaboration with Window World, Home Depot, Milestone Electric, StarFloors, Huffman Builders-DFW, D&G Roofing, Red Beard Electric, Sure Touch General Contracting, SWYPIT, and Reel Heroes Media are proud to announce the remolding of a home for a Vietnam Veteran living in Waco, TX.
The need was communicated of a Vietnam Veteran living in Waco, TX, who is now wheelchair bound and needed updates to his home to facilitate his new living conditions and requirements. After a few phone calls to Airpower Foundation supporters, they all responded with “absolutely”, and “what can we do to help”. With this immediate support offered without question from each of our amazing supporters, the project was underway, and has just been completed.
The home was completely remodeled with all new appliances, windows, doors, siding, A/C, heating, electrical, cabinets, a new roof, and ADA accessible doors with a ramp to assist this Vietnam Veteran with his current needs. A welcome home event was held on January 18, 2020 with all our sponsors, supporters, and the family, as we said “Welcome Home” to this hero into his newly remodeled house.
The Heart Behind Sky Ball
Our premier fundraising event, Airpower Foundation Sky Ball, has raised over $24 million since its inception that has funded hundreds of military support programs thanks to our generous sponsors. Sky Ball fundraising gala is the kick-off event for this most Patriotic Weekend. Events over the weekend include educational outreach programs to local area schools, a pep rally and concert for military and families Friday evening, the Commander’s Classic at Globe Life Field where Army takes on AirForce, and Military Appreciation Day at the Cowboy’s game on Sunday. There simply is no other event in the country that matches the size and scope of Sky Ball.
