Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation and partner charity, American Warrior Initiative, surprised a local veteran and his family with a check and a new family van!
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Air Force Combat Veteran Lee Cahill served three tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq.
After coming home, his family settled near Shaw Air Force Base in Columbia, but lost everything they had after the historic flooding back in 2015.
A childhood friend, now a realtor, told Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation and their partner charity, American Warrior Initiative, about his story and they decided to help.
Cahill was presented with a check for $5,056 Wednesday during a presentation at Elevation Church - Blakeney. But waiting outside was the bigger surprise: a new family car purchased by Regional Branch Managers.
