We are proud to present a Healing Our Heroes’ Homes community service award to Nate Larsen, Superintendent at Sundt Construction Inc.! Our organization has only known Nate for a couple of months, and with that being said, no one has ever earned an Embrace community service award in such a short period of time. The time, effort, attention to detail and dedication that Nate exhibited during our 10th home remodel was extraordinary. He’s an extraordinary human being, and we are both proud and honored to know him. Thank you Nate!
