York Purple Heart Veteran Will Receive New Home for the Holidays
Purple Heart recipient Tom Barr will stay warm this winter season, thanks to community members donating thousands of dollars to go toward his new mobile home.
Wayne Avery, who owns Dr. Heat and Mr. Cool HVAC service in York, said he has at least $47,000 raised to replace Barr’s mold-infested mobile home on Punkintown Road in Eliot.
That is about $10,000 shy of the amount needed.
With the rate at which donations have come over the last two weeks, Avery is optimistic they will cover the cost before the holidays.
