Extreme Home Makeover Madison,GA

Today kicked off the much anticipated Extreme Makeover Home Edition in Madison. Lake Oconee’s Pilot Builders and Smart Properties of Madison have teamed up to help build a dream home for a very deserving family. Miss Anaiah Rucker is a hero in the eyes of many, especially her younger sister, Camry, whose life she’s been credited in saving this past March. Click here on AOLNews to read more about their story. They were surprised this morning by Ty Pennington and the rest of the Extreme Makeover crew.

Extreme Makeover Home Edition chose the family as a recipient for a new home and they are in town this week to make that dream come true. Thousands are volunteering and Coldwell Banker Lake Oconee Realty is proud to be a Platinum Partner for the project and Marge At Large is proud to be a volunteer. Below are some pictures from Day 1!

    We just heard about this and would like to volunteer. We live in Milledgeville. Is it too late to come help out? Can you tell us how to volunteer?

    • Margie says:

      To volunteer go to http://www.joinextreme.com/ and you can sign up there. When I signed up I chose an available time that worked for me and I think last Saturday I got an email explaining to me where I needed to go, what to wear, what time to be there, etc. So it may take a few days to get the email response back.

      I’m doing it with my company, Coldwell Banker, as well so there are all types of different groups volunteering! It’s a lot of fun so get to the website as soon as you can and hopefully there will still be some time slots available! Best of luck and maybe I’ll see you on site!

        Will they allow you to volunteer if there aren’t any time slots left available. I would really like to help out

    Hey Marcus- sorry that I didn’t catch your comment sooner. Tomorrow is the final day and as far as I know they are overwhelmed with volunteers. Doesn’t mean it’s not worth a shot though! If you want to see if there is a space for you, you can go to the tent in the Goody’s parking lot there in Madison and ask. There is someone there 24 hours a day from what I understand. Good luck!
