Brandon Stephens, president of Christmas Decor, and his seven helpful elves surprised Tuesday. The home and construction company has been installing free Christmas decorations to 200 deserving families each year since 2005. Two separate people nominated Alvarezs for the holiday gift.
“Obviously they deserve recognition, and they deserve a gift,” says Stephens.
Geisha Alvarez is working towards that to some extent while balancing the schedules of her eight children and being a carer for her husband, Angel. The father and veteran suffered a traumatic brain injury when his convoy was hit by an IED in Iraq, and he is also a two-time cancer survivor.
Even after eating, the couple volunteered with veteran organizations like Team Patriot and Operation Homefront.
“The best way to keep pushing and living is to do things for other people and that will help me complete,” said Angel Alvarez.
Now, this sparkling review sign is making this family holiday even more fun.
“It makes us happy. It makes us know that what we do for others, to help them in time of need, that matters,” Angel said.
“I’m about to cry again,” Geisha added.
