‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ seeks deserving Central Virginia families
Henrico Citizen Staff Reports 04/07/11
The producers of the ABC show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition are seeking nominations of local families who are deserving of home makeovers or new homes.
“We are looking for the deserving people and inspiring families that America can really root for,” said Supervising Casting Producer Adam Drucker. "We're looking for those special people who have amazing strength of character and never give up. Whether it’s keeping their chin up in really tough circumstances or going out of their way to help others. We want to help people whose stories have really affected their community or made a big difference in other people's lives.”
Producers are looking for families whose homes desperately need to be rebuilt.
“We really want to help families whose homes present major problems for the family, those big issues that affect the family's quality of life on a daily basis," Drucker said. "We want to find deserving people who just don't have the resources, ability, or time to fix those serious issues without our help.”
Nominations may be submitted by the family or by a member of their community. Each nomination must include the names and ages of every member of the household along with a description of the major challenges within the home, and a short description of the family story.
Anyone submitting a nomination should explain why the nominated family is deserving, heroic, and/or a great role model for their community. If possible, include recent photos of the family and home. All nominations must include a contact phone number.
