Vol. 4, Iss. 9, Good Deeds: Deer Point Homes Builds Home for Wounded Marine

by Chicago Agent

Wauconda-based Deer Point Homes has announced it is partnering with the Wounded Heroes Foundation, a non-profit organization, in a new program to help build homes at affordable prices for the servicemen and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who have been severely injured due to the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Miguel Delgado, a retired Marine Sergeant from Waukegan, whose leg was injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq, will purchase the first home built through this partnership. The groundbreaking for his new home will take place on May 8 at Shepherds Crossing, a Deer Point Homes community in north-suburban Zion.

The Wounded Heroes Foundation was established in 2003 when Anna Sherony, the mother of a Marine who served in Iraq, learned of the physical, emotional and financial hardships faced by injured service personnel and their families face upon returning home.
