In an ABC press release this weekend, the station says the team of Extreme Makeover Home Edition is gearing up along with some of country music’s biggest stars to rebuild a school devastated by the floods that took place in The Music City back in May. Keep reading for more details on what we can expect from Ty Pennington and the gang!
ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition, the show that is known for helping families is going bigger this time around. ABC says the team is getting ready to rebuild a school that was devastated by the 2010 floods in Tennessee. The Lighthouse School became known nationally when news stations featured footage of one of their buildings floating down the interstate. ABC reports that “despite the extensive damage to their own facility, the Sweatt family, who have been running the school since 2003, spearheaded recovery efforts, and to date have helped over 200 families.” So it’s their turn to get some much needed help.
Eight of The Lighthouse School’s eighteen buildings were damaged beyond repair from the flooding and their preschool was completely destroyed. The Sweatt family whose finances are nearly depleted do not have the resources or the funds to rebuild anything. They are going to be in for a shock when Ty Pennington and the gang show head their way to give back to those who have given their community so much. We are also told there will be some big name country stars coming in to help, but we are not sure who will be there yet. There is date on when the episode will air, so you’ll have to keep watching to see for yourself. Remember to tune in for the season premiere of Extreme Makeover Home Edition on Sunday September 26!
