They lost their home in a fire and are now trying to rebuild their lives.

Bregman’s mother told him about the story so he called his buddy Mack at Gallery Furniture.

“He’s a role model for me so I called him, and we tried to figure out what we could do,” Bregman told the family after surprising them with the furniture.

They also gave them a $3,000 gift certificate to Gallery Furniture.

“We have a lot of beautiful furniture for you when you get ready to move in, and all of this was made possible by my friend Alex, who is a great guy,” Mack said.

In return, the family gave Bregman a drawing of him their daughter did for a project at the University of Houston.

If you’d like to help the Flores family as they rebuild their home, give Mack a call at Gallery Furniture.
