This is Jane and Bruce, and this is their story.
They’ve been married for over 35 years and they’ve had their ups and downs.
Over 10 years ago,, Bruce made some terrible investment decisions and lost a big portion of their retirement funds. This caused incredible stress in the marriage as well as their extended family.
They had to sell their house and one of the family cars.
This caused Bruce to go into depression, something he has had before. He wanted some space from Jane and was considering divorce.
After going through marriage counselling, they set aside their disputes and diffreneces however there was still the issue with the money.
When our team met up with Jane and Bruce, we saw how much they were committed to each other and wanted to make things work. However their finances were non existent.
So we got to work. We helped them purchased some second hand appliances that they desperately needed and helped with some of their debts.
We went to https://www.savers.com/ and helped them pick out a few sets of warm winter clothes so that they could save their money to buy a new washing machine.
We met up with this couple again a year later to find them happy and content with all the help that we offered.
Jane and Bruce are just one of the nearly 2,000 homeowners that Sears and Rebuilding Together have helped transform their lives through Heroes at Home. Since 2007, we have partnered to make veterans and their families’ homes safe and healthy. More than 40,000 volunteers have donated nearly 320,000 hours on projects, and our supporters have raised nearly $19 million though online and in-store donations. Our veterans have sacrificed for their country and their families.
We are honored to be able to serve those who have served us, both at home and around the world.
