ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The Warners surprised two St. Louis families with an early Christmas gift by furnishing their homes.

April and Sheena worked hard with Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis taking the steps necessary to purchase their first homes. What they didn’t know is that Kurt and Brenda Warner had a gift for them. They were shocked to meet the Warners at the intersection of Michigan and Elwood on Friday for the big reveal.

The Warner’s Foundation called, “First Things First” partnered with Aaron’s Furniture, U-Haul and Kellogg to fill the houses with furniture, appliances, food and more. Both mothers shed tears as they walked through their new homes filled with furniture, TV, washer & dryer.  They even put up Christmas décor.  The children also received treats in the pantry and some of their favorite DVDs.

Kurt Warner posted these pics to Facebook Saturday.  The post has gone viral with over 25,000 likes and 16,000 shares.
