NEW MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A special partnership is helping a local man get back into his home this holiday.

Frank McGuire lives in New Middletown with his wife, but he’s currently in a nursing home and can’t return to his house until it is safe and accessible.

So volunteers from Home Depot teamed up with Veterans’ Outreach to replace carpet, paint and help organize the home for the couple.

Work on the home began Friday.

“Giving back is part of Home Depot’s core values. We have 35,000 associates nationwide that are veterans, so it’s nice to give back, not only to our associates, but to veterans in the community,” said Boardman Home Depot Assistant Store Manager Greg DeCarlo.

McGuire served in World War II in the Navy.

Home Depot hopes to have the majority of the work done on the home by Christmas.
