The family of a Massachusetts Marine killed in a domestic terrorist attack is partnering with the Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity to help a military family in need.
The family of Marine Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan will be building “Tommy’s House” for another military family in need.
According to the Sullivan family, the collaboration is intended to honor Tommy’s memory and generous spirit.
The goal is to build a home in the Springfield area for a family in need of “simple, decent, affordable housing.”
The Springfield native’s sister, Dianne, said they are “humbled and proud” to partner with Habitat for Humanity and hope to build what she calls a “Tommy home” in every state.
Sullivan was one of five service members killed in attacks on military facilities in Chattanooga on July 16, 2015.
An information and kickoff event will be held at Nathan Bill’s on May 2.
