New Braunfels, TX
Sat.-Mon., Oct. 5-7 • 6:30 am - 6 pm
In the spirit of Building Communities and Making Connections, BCMC Build is teaming up with Operation Finally Home and the Building Systems Councils to build a home for Cody Allen Nusbaum, a Specialist in the US Army. While serving in the Kandahar region of Afghanistan, Cody’s unit was ambushed by Taliban fighters disguised as Afghan police officers. Cody was shot
numberous times, requiring more than 65 surgeries to repair his injuries. After a series of revolutionary procedures to repair his hip and leg, and five months of painful physical therapy, Cody recently took his first steps–fifteen months after the attack. In October, Cody will be able to take another important step when he walks across the threshold of his new home! Visit bcmcbuild.com to find out how you can participate in the project, make a cash or material donation and check out the house plans. Any contribution–large or small, individually or through your business–is greatly appreciated.
