DuPont donates Great Stuff™ insulating foam sealant for veteran’s home in Lynn, Massachusetts; TV series to premiere on Lifetime
DuPont has worked with “Military Makeover with Montel®,” an award-winning home improvement show, to support a home renovation for a National Guard veteran. DuPont donated Great Stuff™ Insulating Foam Sealant for the renovation, which will be showcased on the 35th season of the show premiering on Lifetime Television on August 11.
Hosted by Montel Williams, “Military Makeover” is a reality television program that transforms the homes and lives of military families across the country. For its newest season, “Military Makeover” selected National Guard veteran Jason Carmody and his family as the recipients for the home transformation. Jason joined the Massachusetts National Guard in July 2003, shortly after the United States announced the Iraq War. He felt compelled to do his part for his country after witnessing the event of September 11, 2001.
Great Stuff™ team members were on site to assist with the renovation, which took place in June at the Carmody’s home in Lynn, Massachusetts. During the renovation, Great Stuff™ Insulating Foam Sealant was used to easily and effectively seal the home’s envelope, providing the Carmody family with an energy-efficient solution – and more affordable living – for years to come.
“DuPont deeply values our veterans and remains dedicated to giving back to those who selflessly serve our country,” said David Tavacol, global brand leader, DuPont Performance Building Solutions at DuPont. “Teaming up with ‘Military Makeover’ to uplift the Carmody family and provide them with the dream home they truly deserve is an immense honor for us.”
Tune in to “Military Makeover” on Lifetime on Thursday, 9/7 at 7:30 a.m. ET/PT to watch the episode featuring Great Stuff™ Insulating Foam Sealant. Viewers can also watch the heartwarming episode on YouTube.
