The 11th Operation Home Rescue project home served Sherman Bussard who is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corp. At Sherman's home, TMG Maintenance team members replaced his shower door with one that will be much easier and safer for him to use, as well as coordinated with Cascade Tree Works to trim limbs off of an overhanging tree, giving him peace of mind.
TMG Cares' Operation Home Rescue completed work on its tenth project home, providing repairs for Marine Corp veteran Sharman Bussard.
On June 29th, 2023, Operation Home Rescue completed its 11th project home, serving veteran Sherman Bussard. Sherman served in the in the U.S. Marine Corp active duty 1959-1963 and served in the reserves until 1965. He was stationed in southern California and worked as a jet mechanic.
Sherman requested the help of Operation Home Rescue after receiving a post card from us during our marketing campaign back in February. He was happy to have our help now that he is no longer as mobile as he used to be to perform maintenance tasks on his own.
The main task performed by the maintenance team at the home was to remove the existing sliding shower door with a new swing door with a much larger opening. This will allow Sherman to get in and out of his shower in a safer manner. The new shower door was donated to us through Lowe’s.
We also coordinated with Cascade Tree Works to trim limbs off a tree which were overhanging and in contact with his home & roof. This gives Sherman peace of mind, knowing the branches have been removed. Cascade Tree Works gave us a discount on the work, knowing we are helping out a veteran in need.
Lunch was donated by Jimmy John’s to keep us fueled. Our staff volunteer for the day was Melinda Lollar – she delivered the donated lunch to us at the project home. She was also a volunteer at the Harris Home #8, so she got to compare projects and work sites!
We had a great day being invited into Sherman’s home and serving him.
