TAMPA, Fla., March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The TV program Military Makeover® will be featuring a Tampa-area military family in its Q2 2016 programs; taping begins March 7. The program's mission is to redesign the home of a deserving U.S. military veteran and his family. The Kyle family of Pinnellas Park, Florida will be featured. The program is hosted by R. Lee Ermey "The Gunny" and is broadcast on the Lifetime channel.

"First Class Moving Systems is a proud supporter of our military and local community," says Chris Hunt, CEO of First Class Moving Systems. "We're honored to have the opportunity to help out a local military family."

As the program's official moving partner, northAmerican Van Lines, through its local interstate agent First Class Moving Systems, will be packing and storing the family's belongings during the redesign. Any furnishings that will not be part of the new design will be donated to the Habitat ReStore of Hillsborough County as part of the northAmerican national partnership with Habitat ReStores. Habitat ReStore resale outlets sell new and gently used household items and building materials to the public at a fraction of the retail price. In turn, they invest the funds into creating affordable housing and building better communities.

"northAmerican Van Lines and its agent family have always supported the local community and our military," says Andy Kroll, Vice President and General Manager, northAmerican Van Lines. "Besides our participation in the Military Makeover program, northAmerican also supports our military and veterans through its work with the Gary Sinise Foundation R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment) program."
