Iraq War veteran builds her home with help from Nissan, Habitat and Wounded Warrior Project

Earlier this month, Nissan North America, in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity and Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), started construction of a Dallas-area home in partnership with Brenda Lopez, a current member of the Army Reserves who served with the 360th Brigade in Iraq during 2008 and 2009.

The home build, which is expected to be completed this summer, was initially announced following Nissan’s 90-second “With Dad” Super Bowl XLIX commercial and the company’s $1 million donation to the two nonprofit organizations.
