Norris Furniture donates, helps in home makeover for Army vet

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Southwest Florida retailer Norris Furniture & Interiors is providing furniture and furnishings to a local wounded veteran as part of “Military Makeover,” airing on the Lifetime Network. The national series transforms the homes and lives of military veterans and their families.

“As a veteran myself, it is such an honor to give back to another veteran and his family,” said Larry Norris, owner of Norris Furniture & Interiors. “We are proud to be part of something that is giving back to those who have given so much to this country.”

Local of Cape Coral, Fla., Army Staff Sergeant Daniel Burgess was chosen to have his home renovated as part of the television series. In 2011, Burgess was injured by a hidden improvised explosive device as he was working with Marines in Afghanistan. His recovery from the catastrophic injuries is ongoing, and his family desires to make their home safer and more accommodating for him.

Norris designer Angela DiFrancesco coordinated with Home & Garden Television’s Jennifer Bertrand to select several items for the Burgess’ dining room and master bedroom at Norris’ Fort Myers showroom. Norris delivered all of the furniture to the newly-renovated home and was part of the reveal on Dec. 12.

The full renovation will be unveiled in a seven-part series airing on Lifetime Network’s “Military Makeover” program starting Feb. 12 and concluding March 26.
