Furniture Classics helps furnish wounded veteran's home
August 21, 2013,
NORFOLK, Va. — Accent and dining furniture specialist Furniture Classics has partnered with Wind Farm Interiors, an interior design boutique in Mobile, Ala., to help furnish the home of a veteran who was wounded in the war in Afghanistan.
Marine Cpl. Christopher Montgomery lost both his legs and the use of his left arm after an explosive device detonated while he was on patrol. He was flown to Germany, then home to the U.S. where he underwent a lengthy recovery.
Furniture Classics donated a $4,000 dining table and four chairs for the home. The company also matched each dollar donated by staff and presented Montgomery a check for more than $3,000.
Doug Ricks, the owner of Furniture Classics, who also has served in the Marines, said in a statement, "Freedom is not free, and this young man has paid a significant price for the freedoms we enjoy. It is an honor to stand along with this brave hero and assist in his time of need."
Additional contributions for Montgomery can be made to:
