2015 AGC Charities Operation Opening Doors Project
This year AGC Charities and member-firm Desarrollos Metropolitanos will work to rebuild the home of wheelchair-bound Army veteran Jose “Rafi” Quinonez. Mr. Quinonenz served our country for over three decades and saw combat with the Special Forces in Vietnam, Somalia, and Iraq. While the decorated combat veteran was serving abroad, thieves looted his family home of all wiring, plumbing and key fixtures. Since his combat wounds have left him largely wheelchair-bound since 1997, Mr. Quinonez has been unable to repair his home, and was forced to live in a shack behind his house.
AGC Charities will be joined by a team of volunteers led by San Juan, Puerto Rico-based Desarrollos Metropolitanos to fully renovate Mr. Quinonez’s home. During the renovation, we will build a new wheel chair ramp, install new windows, electrical wiring, plumbing, install a handicap accessible kitchen and bathroom, widen all doorways to make them wheelchair accessible, add air conditioning, repair his leaking roof and re-plaster and repaint the inside and outside of his house. Once completed, the newly rebuilt house will provide this decorated combat veteran with the comfort and dignity he earned defending our country.
