Peggy and David Beamer donated a high-definition flat-screen TV to the Lorain County Valor Home in Lorain on Wednesday.

Peggy and David are the parents of Todd Beamer, who was one of the heroes that helped bring down United Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pa., on Sept. 11, 2001.

The Beamers won the TV at the Hope Always Lives On — or HALO — Foundation’s “Wings of Charity” event, and they requested it be donated to veterans. The TV was dedicated in the names of Todd Beamer and Flight 93.
