Move over, Frosty and Rudolph – Stewart Title Guaranty Co. is joining the line up of holiday season television heroes.
The Houston-based company will be featured on the Dec. 17 edition of the ABC television series ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.’ The company participated with host Ty Pennington (pictured left), a team of designers and HelpingaHero.org to raise funds for the construction of a custom home for Staff Sergeant Shilo Harris, a wounded U.S. Army veteran who lives in Floresville, Texas. In addition to raising $42,000 on behalf of the home construction, Stewart Title also coordinated a mortgage payoff and clear title for Harris' previous home.
‘It's always rewarding to help families get into their adapted dream homes, and it was especially so in this case as evidenced by the tremendous outpouring of support from our independent agencies who were inspired by our heroes,’ says George Houghton, Stewart's group president of agency operations. ‘As a Gold Star Dad, this project is very near and dear to me. I am glad that we are able to help in some way those who have so valiantly served our country.’
