The national nonprofit organization Homes For Our Troops said the event will help landscape the future home of Army Sgt. Justin Callahan, who was severely injured in Afghanistan.

Callahan was conducting route clearance operations outside of Bagram Airfield in 2004 when an improvised explosive device went off, resulting in the loss of his left leg.

Volunteers are asked to bring gardening gloves and small garden tools.
