Deja’s husband Deshawn is an E3 in the United States Navy. He is currently deployed to Bahrain. They share two children, a two-year-old and a one-year-old, and live in Jacksonville, FL.
Sadly, this military family recently went through quite a bit of loss. With Deshawn on deployment, Deja went to visit her sick grandmother out of state, who passed away about a week later. While they were out, a bit of mold began to grow in their home unknown to them. Many pieces of their furniture had to be thrown out when they found out they did not have renter’s insurance that would cover the damage.
Wish for Our Heroes is always looking for ways to help military families in need, especially with the stress of a family member on deployment. We helped this special family get the furniture they needed. Deja’s family received $2,000 to cover the cost of a new couch and dining room set.
