Aaron’s, Inc recently teamed up with Warrick Dunn Charities Homes for the Holiday’s program to surprise a single mom, Kimberly Lofton, and her daughters with a three bedroom home full of furniture and food. As if that was not surprise enough, Aaron’s also pitched in a $5,000 down-payment assistance to Atlanta Habitat for Humanity which will greatly lower her monthly mortgage payments. The Lofton home marks the 100th home that Aaron’s has filled with furniture in partnership with Dunn’s “Homes for the Holiday’s” program.
“Aaron’s believes in supporting our communities and helping enrich pep’s lives and we’ve been focused on that mission for nearly 60 years,” said Aaron’s CEO/CFO Gil Danielson. “W’ere proud to partner with Warrick Dunn Charities’ Homes for the Holidays on our 100th Home Presentation to provide single parents like Ms. Lofton a place of stability for their children that they can call home.”
Since it’s inception in 1997, Warrick Dunn Charities Homes for the Holidays program has rewarded 138 single parents and 380 children and dependents that have achieved first-time homeownership in Atlanta, Baltimore, Baton Rouge, Dallas, Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Tampa.
Warrick Dunn played at Florida State and was drafted in the first round of the 1997 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After earning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors he went on to play 11 years in the NFL for the Bucs and Falcons. During his career he earned the Ed Block Courage Award in 1998, Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2004, Home Depot Neighborhood MVP Award in 2006, “Whizzer” White NFL Man of the Year Award in 2007, and Bart Starr Man of the Year Award in 2008. These awards show that even though he became a member of the 10,000 rushing yards club on the field, he also gave back to his community as a solid role model for kids and fans around the country.
