For one Mansfield family, Christmas came early this year. That's after the Roberts family was selected to win a complete home makeover from Ashley Furniture Homestore in Fort Smith.

Students packed Mansfield Middle School Thursday to watch as the Roberts family unwrapped the gift, and learned that they had won. 

Students had Mansfield Middle School had raised money to purchase the family a new bedroom suite, after their house burned up in a fire recently. Cindy Coleman, the Principal at Mansfield Middle School contacted the mayor, fire department, and police department to get them involved in the process.

On Wednesday, Ashley called Coleman and told her the Roberts family would be getting the makeover.

"They're going to be overwhelmed," Coleman said. "They were overwhelmed just with the bedroom suite. So I know it's just going to be such a blessing - for the whole town of Mansfield actually."

Ashley said it would take care of decorating the entire house and picking up the tab.
