‘Military Makeover with Montel’ days away from Michigan City home revealed
MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (WNDU) – More than 200 local workers are helping give Michigan City Army veteran Michael Stupar his dream home, thanks to the Lifetime TV series Military makeover with Montel.
“We can’t do our show without all the amazing partners who helped make it happen. There’s so much love put into these homes, I get designer chills – honestly. We have amazing partners – Patrick Industries, everyone who is local who comes to help us do that,” said Military makeover designer Jennifer Bertrand.
Patrick Industries is the representative sponsor of this season of Military makeover.
“We seek to love our neighbors as ourselves, and that’s sort of our mantra, what we strive for, and that’s the path we follow as an organization,” explained Doyle Stump, vice- Executive Chairman at Patrick Industries.
Other home improvement partners include Big C Lumber and HomeWorks Construction.
“Simply giving back to the community – doing what’s right for someone.” And [Michael Stupar’s] the family is amazing. It was great working with them, very easy going, just a very worthwhile cause for HomeWorks to be a part of,” remarked Tony Chimienti, Project Manager at HomeWorks.
Transforming the home has been rewarding for Patrick Industries’ vice president of design, Sarah Raymond.
“I had the pleasure of meeting the family before they left for the next two weeks. And they’re just amazing people. And just the thought of being able to do something so big to help someone who really deserves it,” Raymond said.
Bertrand, whose father was an Air Force colonel, expects the Stupar family to be thrilled when the house is revealed on Friday, June 17.
“Every family thinks they’re going to know what it’s going to be like,” she said. “They are going to feel all the love that is put into their home. And I know they’re gonna lose it and cry tears of joy.
