Military Makeover with Montel®

We’re excited to share that we’re Keeping the Promise by supporting the family of a military hero. 

Protecting the Family of a Hero

UPC took part in Military Makeover with Montel®, when the show honored the family of late U.S. Navy veteran Chris Hixon.

Retired Machinist Mate First Class Hixon bravely served his country in the Persian Gulf during Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield. Then, as the beloved Athletic Director at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, he lost his life defending his students against an active shooter in February 2018. 

Military Makeover with Montel®, a home improvement reality show, brings together companies and volunteers to honor veterans. They remodeled the Hixon family home in Hollywood, Florida. 

UPC Insurance proudly provided the family with a hurricane kit to help them protect their newly remodeled home. We thank Montel Williams and the show for including us in this worthy endeavor.

Each Episode of Military Makeover, featuring the Hixon Family, will air on Fridays at 7:30 am EST on the Lifetime Network. View full episodes here.
