Freedom. It’s been fought for by so many. And in this case, Freedom has formed an incredibly unique connection.
Freedom High School has an automotive class that started a program called Freedom Wheels. Through the efforts of their students, their goal is to provide vehicles to veterans in need.
Their first project is for a veteran named Frank. Frank is a 1997 Freedom High School graduate. He joined the army after 9-11 and truly enjoyed serving his country.
In 2019 he came down with double pneumonia and wasn’t expected to live. After multiple surgeries and a long battle, he beat the odds and was released from the hospital. His arrival back home was met with an eviction notice that left him staying with family, friends and even living in his car.
Frank loves to travel and decided if he couldn’t find a permanent place to live-the road would become his home. That’s where Freedom Wheels entered the picture. They created a video and started a fundraising campaign to find a used motorhome that the students could fix up for Frank to both live and travel in.
Kunes RV of Green Bay heard about their efforts and donated a 2000 Pace Arrow Vision to the Freedom Wheels automotive class.
The process has been a collaborative effort between the students in the class and partners Harbor Freight Tools for Schools and Klink Equipment. Here are some pictures of the students and their instructors and partners hard at work on this incredible project.
At Kunes RV, we appreciate each and ever person that has fought for this great country. We understand that we enjoy the freedoms we have because of those who sacrifice so much. We can’t wait to see this special project by the students and staff at Freedom Wheels come to fruition so that our small effort in giving back to Frank can help him move forward in life.
