Aaron’s and Progressive Leasing recently filled the new home of a single mom and her four sons with furniture, electronics, and appliances as a surprise in Augusta, GA. This wish come true was part of Aaron’s partnership with the Warrick Dunn Charities (WDC) Homes for the Holidays (HFTH) program, sponsored by former NFL star Warrick Dunn. The WDC HFTH program helps single parents become first-time homeowners.
Additional partnerships with the City of Augusta’s Homeownership Assistance Program, Peach State Federal Credit Union (FCU), and Mortgage Bankers Association of Georgia helped provide Valencia and her family with a new, fully furnished home.
“Aaron’s is grateful for the opportunity to work alongside Warrick Dunn Charities to provide a deserving Augusta family a safe place to call home,” says John Robinson, CEO of Aaron’s, Inc. “We have a longstanding tradition of giving back to communities across the country and we’re so pleased that these furnishings will be able to help make a difference for this family in their lives for years to come.”
Valencia works as an educator and strives to equip her children with skills that reach far beyond the classroom. She serves as an influential role model for her students in school and for her family at home.
Aaron’s has been a longtime supporter of WDC initiatives and has contributed home furnishings, appliances, and electronics to the Homes for the Holidays program for the past 16 years.
