United Way & Majors Announce Winner of Home Repair Contest

May 20, 2014

Over 450 votes were counted in the Majors Helps Home Improvement contest, but one family clearly stood out. The “Self-Sacrificing” family, also known as Carolyn Butler and Debbie Lewis, Milton, were selected as the winners of the 2014 Home Repair project.  Majors Home Improvement, in partnership with United Way of Santa Rosa County, launched its 2014 community initiative, Majors Helps in March, inviting residents to advocate for others by submitting stories for a family in need. United Way and Majors narrowed the applications down to three families who were posted on Facebook for the community to vote. Plans are currently underway and a project date will be announced soon.  The community can follow this family’s project transformation at United Way Santa Rosa County or Majors.

“It’s amazing to see the community’s response for this deserving family.  We are excited to offer our home improvement expertise to repair their home,” states Mike Majors, president of Majors Home Improvement. This home will benefit from needed improvements which will provide a safer and more energy efficient home.

“We at United Way Santa Rosa County find the involvement of the community absolutely incredible,” shares Anja Machado, UW Director of Marketing and Communications. United Way and Majors are now seeking volunteers who would like to lend a helping hand during the home repairs, and detailed information pertaining to the date and types of skills desired will be released in the coming weeks. Volunteers can already sign up at United Way Santa Rosa’s Volunteer Center located at 6479-A Caroline St. in Milton, or by calling 623-4507.
