One thing that is always heartwarming to see in the Crossroads is the amount of support given to military veterans. There are a number of great projects devoted to helping those that have served our country, and it's a pleasure to show our support. Two local businesses are working on a great project to give one vet's family an exterior home makeover, and you can help.

Platinum Homes and Sherwin-Williams have teamed up with the Military Veteran Peer Network to do the full exterior makeover, but they need volunteers to help with painting and vendors to help by donating materials for the project, and refreshments for the volunteers who will be donating their time and energy.

Pat Visconti and Niki Wheeler have been chosen to receive the makeover from the network on their home at 1306 N. Deleon in Victoria. Volunteers are needed to help prep the home for painting on Saturday, May 7th, and to do the painting on Saturday, May 14th.

This is such a great way to help support our warriors who have given so much for us. To donate, volunteer or for more information, email
