Pompano Beach, FL, November 26, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Award-winning home improvement show Designing Spaces™ airing on the Lifetime channel has teamed up with Nissan North America, Inc. for the “Designing Spaces of Hope – Military Makeover” three-part series. Nissan will be featured in episode #2 on Friday November 28, 2014 at 7:30 am (ET/PT).
"Designing Spaces of Hope – Military Makeover” presented by Nissan, airing consecutive Fridays beginning November 21st, will chronicle the renovations of the home of wounded Purple Heart recipient Stephen Lunt, his wife Ashley and their son. While in Afghanistan, Lunt was forced to fight an insurgent in hand-to-hand combat, which resulted in multiple surgeries and a long and painful recovery.
Designing Spaces along with their valued partners like Nissan will take viewers step-by-step along this transformative journey to see how the house, provided mortgage-free by Operation Homefront, is changed room by room, inside and out, into a more comfortable home for the Lunt family. Through its Homes on the Homefront program, Operation Homefront – with the help of its corporate partners – awards mortgage-free homes to veterans of any era, helping bring the American dream of home ownership to those who have sacrificed so much for their country.
Nissan North America is committed to serving the communities in which our employees and customers live and work. The company’s programs focus on three main areas including education, the environment and humanitarian aid.
For the renovation, Nissan will once again drive the makeover by providing vehicles to move, haul, carry and distribute products for the military makeover, as well as support all transportation needs.
“Through its charitable efforts, Nissan focuses on touching lives and improving the quality of life in local communities. Our continued work with ‘Designing Spaces of Hope – Military Makeover,’ provides us with the opportunity to assist members the U.S. Armed Forces in need,” said Jeremy Tucker, vice president, Marketing Communications and Media, Nissan North America, Inc. “We thank Stephen Lunt for his service and are honored to support the transformation of the Lunt family home this year.”
“We were extremely excited to work with Nissan North America as our presenting sponsor for our Military Makeover once again. Their assistance on and off camera helped make the makeover a tremendous success and we look forward to showing our viewers the unbelievable transformation that took place,” said Scott Moss, Director of Programming, Designing Spaces.
