Veteran Has Been Gifted New Home, Furniture Row to Furnish

A wounded veteran has been gifted new home in Colorado Springs. When Furniture Row learned of  Specialist Patrick McPherson’s story, this amazing gift, and the most deserving McPherson family, we were eager to partner with US Bank, Freedom Alliance, and Five Brothers organizations to contribute our services. We are proud to furnish the McPherson’s home, and are honored to share his story with you.

Heroes to Home Owners

On his third tour of duty in Afghanistan, Specialist McPherson’s unit was struck by a mortar, resulting in a brutal firefight. Patrick sustained both physical, and psychological injuries. Fortunately, he was medivaced from Afghanistan, and safely returned to his family in the United States. The lingering impact of Patrick’s combat injuries make daily life a challenge for him, and his family. They struggle with the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, yet remain loving and hopeful throughout.

Alaskan transplants to Colorado, the McPherson’s are excited to find community among the large network of military persons and their families in Colorado Springs. Furniture Row understands that moving into a new home can be overwhelming under any circumstance. In appreciation of Patrick’s service and sacrifice, Furniture Row is proud to fully furnish the McPherson’s new home. We are also extending the services of our lead interior designer to ensure the McPherson’s can create the home of their dreams.

Our thanks to FOX21 News for capturing the deserving family’s reaction to seeing their new home for the first time.

Check back in for an update on this interior design, and updates as we’re aiming to have home design completed in time for Thanksgiving!

    Furniture Row furnished and decorated the entire home Tuesday Nov 25th.
    It was fun to see the reaction of the McPherson family when they walked through the front door. Lots of happy tears. Just a great day all around.
