We Need a Few Good Men and a Few Good Women

Be A VolunteerAs you may know, Palm Harbor Homes, Inc. announced that we will be joining ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for an upcoming build in mid-November in West Texas.

Now all we need is volunteers!!!!!! Click here.

We will have two informational Pep Rallies next week – Monday Nov 8th at 6 PM in Midland, TX and Tuesday Nov 9th at 6 PM in Lubbock TX.

What is a Pep Rally? It’s an informational meeting where Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Senior Producer Milan Vasic presents the history of the show and explains the process of building a home in a week! It is TRULY an around the clock endeavor – from start to finish. The perception of some people is that because it is such a large television production backed by ABC, a huge television network partnering up with a large homebuilder that all of this is easy to plan, coordinate and complete. The truth I learned after going thru one of the build cycles is that this entire event is ONLY possible thru the help and support and HARD WORK of the volunteers! Without you, this amazing gift to such a deserving family simply will not happen!

Who is eligible? We need anybody and everybody. We need skilled labor but we also need people who are just willing to do anything that needs to be done. We need donations but we also need people wanting to get their hands dirty. We need people who love the show but we also need people who simply want to help a deserving family. We need people who live in the area but we also need people who are willing to travel. Basically, we need anybody and everybody willing to do the hard work of charity – work that rewards way beyond any other type of work.

So – grab a hammer, lace up your work boots (or buy some. I got mine at Wal Mart for $20) and head to West Texas for a life-changing experience – for you and for the recipient family.

This will be the second time the popular television program has featured a home built by Palm Harbor Homes. Although the name of the family and the location of the home site cannot be released until the week of November 16, one of several deserving families in West Texas has been selected as the recipient for a new Palm Harbor home and a life changing event.

If your company is interested in being a sponsor and sending a group of employees, email me.

Palm Harbor Homes, Inc. is happy to announce that they will be joining ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for an upcoming build in mid-November. This will be the second time the popular television program has featured a home built by Palm Harbor Homes. Although the name of the family and the location of the home site cannot be released until November 16, one of five deserving families in West Texas has been selected as the recipient for a new Palm Harbor home and a life changing event.

As long-time national builders of manufactured and modular homes, Palm Harbor Homes is perfectly aligned to assist Extreme Makeover: Home Edition with this important, time-sensitive task. Building and delivering a high quality home with extreme customization in one week is a routine part of the job for this homebuilder. Because these homes are built in environmentally-protected building centers with constant quality checks and then transported to the final home site, rain and other weather delays do not impact the build schedule.

Maury Kennedy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Palm Harbor Homes, stated, “We are thrilled to be building our second home with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. We will never forget our experience with our first build in West Georgia. Having this opportunity to make a huge difference in the life of another deserving family is a second special assignment for us. We are proud and excited to have been the first modular company to work with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in their mission to improve the lives of families across our country. Once again, we are grateful for the outpouring of generosity from our builders, sponsors, associates and many others who have already donated to this wonderful cause without even knowing the family.”
