Kurt, Brenda Warner donate house full of furniture to Valley mother
PHOENIX - Former Arizona Cardinal Kurt Warner and his wife, Brenda, are giving a Valley mother and her young son the surprise of a lifetime just in time for Mother's Day.
Through their First Things First Foundation, the couple is set to surprise the woman and her 2-year-old son on May 6 by furnishing their home in Phoenix.
Munira Abdul Kabir and her son Khalid worked with Habitat for Humanity to build and purchase this home - but they had no idea that an NFL Hall of Famer would help fill their new residence with furniture.
"The Homes for the Holidays program is about being able to provide and allow families to create those lifelong memories," Warner said. "And you have a place to call their own."
Homes for the Holidays is a initiative run by the First Things First Foundation, an organization the Warner family started nearly 18 years ago. Today, their work is helping this mother feel at peace.
"Oh my God, I am so happy and excited - I'm speechless," said Munira. "This is my forever home."
When her son is old enough to understand, she say's she'll tell him about all the people who helped make this happen.
"Nobody really gets anywhere without the help of someone else, and now, for a long time it was, ‘we need that help,’" Kurt Warner said. "Now, we're in a position to give that help and that's what these programs are all about."
