Operation FINALLY HOME

Operation FINALLY HOME


Operation FINALLY HOME provides mortgage-free homes to wounded, ill, and injured veterans, first responders, and their families. They do this by partnering with national and local builders, developers, builder associations, corporate sponsors, and individuals in the veteran’s community. Operation FINALLY HOME has already completed over 300 homes, and McCoy’s has partnered with them to complete another in Alamo, TX, for the Sanchez family!

The Sanchez’s Story

U.S. Army Specialist Jacob Sanchez served for over four years and was deployed to Afghanistan. While in Afghanistan, Sanchez’s unit was attacked. When the gun mounted on top of his truck jammed, Sanchez jumped on top of the truck amidst enemy fire to fix it. As a result of his many missions, he sustained various injuries, was honorably discharged, and declared 100% disabled. For his valiant service, Sanchez is a recipient of the Combat Action Badge, Army Commendation Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, as well as several other awards.

After applying to Operation FINALLY HOME, Sanchez, his wife, Sam, and their six children learned they had been selected to receive a custom home through a Zoom call on March 19, 2021. While the journey has been challenging for Sanchez and his wife, they feel honored to have been selected to receive a new home that will be custom-built to suit their family’s needs. Operation FINALLY HOME, in partnership with Courtesy Custom Homes, McCoy’s, and H-E-B thanks the Sanchez family for their service. Congratulations on your new home!

Born To Build Heroes

Building a mortgage-free, custom home that fits the lifestyle of any family is a challenge. Yet, Courtesy Custom Homes has generously volunteered to build the perfect home for the Sanchez family at no cost them. This brother and sister duo, Carlos and Rosita Juvera, donated the two lots the home will occupy and are donating all labor to build the home. Courtesy Custom Homes enjoys giving back to the community and is a strong advocate for building better homes in the Rio Grande Valley. They’ve built over 500 homes in the Rio Grande Valley, focusing on designing homes that reflect the purchaser’s style and personality.

Breaking Ground

Building a home requires a large amount of materials, and McCoy’s Building Supply, along with several of our vendor partners, is honored to work with Courtesy Custom Homes and Operation FINALLY HOME to support building this house for the Sanchez family.

With donations from McCoy’s, along with Operation FINALLY HOME, H-E-B, and Courtesy Custom Homes, the Sanchez family will be receiving a mortgage-free home they know is made with high-quality materials and crafted with care by local construction experts.

On July 8, 2021 Operation FINALLY HOME hosted a groundbreaking for the Sanchez family’s new home. Attended by officials from that organization and from H-E-B, they were joined by builders Carlos and Rosita Juvera, as well as Reid McCoy, current Vice Chairman, Board of Directors of McCoy’s Building Supply and former Navy officer, and Manny Gonzales, manager of the Pharr McCoy’s Building Supply store. Also in attendance were local dignitaries, including Hildago County Commissioner Eddie Cantu, and City of Alamo Mayor Diana Martinez. They were joined by veterans from area McCoy’s stores including Art Ravize (Army), George Palacios (Navy), and John Bengston (Army) from the Harlingen store, as well as Mario Soto (Navy) from the Rio Grande City store, Javi De La Rosa (Air Force) of the Mission store, and Ben Ramirez (Army) of the Pharr store.

Following the Presentation of Colors and the Pledge of Allegiance as well as remarks from donors and the Sanchez family, the ceremony concluded with the ceremonial groundbreaking. As the home progresses, guests, workers, and the community will have the opportunity to write notes on the framing of the home in a Notes of Love ceremony to provide a warm welcome for the Sanchez family. At the end of the project, a grand reveal is planned when the home is completed. Check back for progress updates as the build gets underway.
