I recently received an e-mail from Bellamy Homes and I just knew there would be many interested folks locally, that would not be aware of it. Please share this information with anyone you think would like to participate…..
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (ABC) is coming to the “greater Charlotte area”. The builder is Bellamy Homes from Cornelius (a contract that was negotiated over a year ago based on applications of families in this area) and they have requested to partner with the Lincoln County Home Builders Association for this project in the event it happens in Lincoln County.
Mark Ingle (president LCHBA) is working directly with Wade Miller of Bellamy Homes to secure building products and skilled volunteers for the construction portion. Hodges Willoughby of Bellamy Homes is working to secure non-skilled volunteers for everything outside of the construction site. These are the sort of details and preparations that have to be made ahead of time regardless of whether our community is selected or not.
There are several families in the “greater Charlotte area” that are still being considered.
The website is live today after the press release was presented by Bellamy Homes. Please take the time to visit www.bellamyhomes.com and view the Join Extreme Makeover portion of the website. It is very simple to sign up to be a volunteer. They need both skilled labor (for construction portion) and non-skilled volunteers. There is a job available for everyone interested in being a part of the project.
The announcement date is SUNDAY DECEMBER 11. That will be the day the bus rolls up and Ty steps out with his megaphone to announce their arrival at whichever site is selected. The event will begin immediately and run thru Sunday December 18.
The actual construction portion is Monday December 12-Friday December 16 with punch list being handled on Saturday December 17. They will have shifts for the entire 7 days 24 hours around the clock and you can sign up for what suits your schedule.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of something much bigger than we could ever imagine. You will have the opportunity to meet the “stars” of the show during your volunteer time. But better than that, you will be helping provide a new home for an outstanding family in whichever community is selected. This show is not about how bad the house is you currently live in, it’s about the extra-ordinary circumstances of your life that demand a better living space.
Maybe you can only give 4 hours that week or you can give 40 hours that week – no matter how much or how little they can use it. Again the website is www.bellamyhomes.com – it only takes a few minutes to register.
