Art Van Furniture Donates Furnishings To Detroit Veteran Sgt. Davin Dumar As Part Of Operation FINALLY HOME With The Kid Rock Foundation And Pulte Homes

WARREN, Mich., Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Art Van Furniture is donating the furnishings for the new home of Michigan war veteran Sergeant Davin Dumar. Kid Rock and his foundation, partnered with Pulte Homes, as part of Operation FINALLY HOME, to present the new mortgage-free 2,600 square foot property to Sgt. Dumar and his wife Dana. The Dumars will move into the Macomb home on Friday, February 1, 2013. Deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 with the Army's 1-25th SBCT, Sgt. Dumar was struck by an IED during an engagement with enemy forces. Dumar's left leg was amputated as a result of the injury he sustained.
