Last November, WWCB News Rising in Charlotte, NC announced their newest segment to ‘Wilson’s World’: ‘Wilson’s Moment of Good,’ hosted by Jon Wilson. This segment is completely dedicated to giving back to people throughout the Charlotte community that selflessly donated their time and financial resources to help others in need. Salsarita’s is proud to sponsor this segment, which is why we give each recipient a $500 gift card!
In May, the ‘Wilson’s Moment of Good’ recognition was presented to Tim Parker, a supporter and volunteer of Purple Heart Homes. Purple Heart Homes was founded by veterans, for veterans; co-founders John Gallina and Dale Beatty can be seen in the video as well.
“At the end of the day, we are helping our brothers and sisters with their homes. We are leaving a vet with an improvement in his house that’s going to last him 20, 30, 40 years. The vet will be able to stay in their house and be able to live there. They won’t have to go to a rehab home, a veteran’s home, or anything like that,” said Parker, upon receiving the reward.
When asked what it means to him to be a part of Purple Heart Homes, Parker replied, “It’s awesome. We’re still continuing to serve our country. We’re serving our brothers and sisters, our veterans.”
