from November 11 to December 31

Recently, Westfield Annapolis collaborated with The Container Store and Systems by Susie on a fun and unique giveaway: a brand-new space makeover for a local military veteran. After considering the many deserving entries we received, it was the story of the Swick family that stood out to us the most.

Bill and Laura Swick are both retired Navy officers with six children between the ages of 5 and 20. Laura served as a Naval nurse for four years and Bill served for over 24 years, first as an officer and then as a professor at the Naval Academy in Annapolis. Several years ago Bill underwent surgery to treat a rare herniated spinal cord injury, and while he was expected to recover quickly, he was unfortunately left paralyzed from the waist down. The family has since acquired a multitude of medical supplies, wheelchairs and more that are necessary for Bill to go about his activities of daily living which The Container Store and Systems By Susie addressed in their transformation.

The Container Store generously donated more than $6,000 in products and installation services  to complete this room/space transformation and Systems by Susie donated their time to professionally organize the space. After carefully listening to Laura and Bill’s needs, The Container Store and Systems By Susie teams worked to design a new Elfa Decor custom closet. Stay at Home Safely, an Annapolis-based home modifications business, also consulted to ensure the design would enable Bill to dress independently and easily access his medical supplies.

Heartfelt thanks to The Container Store, Systems by Susie, Naptown Scoop and Rick Brady Photography. Without you, this would have not been possible. To the Swick's and all those who have served, Thank You! ❤
