JEFFERSON, Ga. -- The family of Tripp Halstead, the little boy was was severely injured after being hit by a falling tree branch last October, will receive a free home makeover this summer.

Sunshine on a Ranney Day will completely remodel the Halsteads' Jefferson home. The changes will be unveiled July 13.


The Halstead family sold its home and moved into a foreclosed one that could better accommodate the toddler's wheelchair. Sunshine on a Ranney Day plans to add a wheelchair ramp, chair lift and new deck to the home, and to make several improvements, including wider doorways, wood floors and a redesigned kitchen.
