Ideal Homes Joins ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to Collect 23,000 Pounds of Food in Oklahoma City-Area Drive

January 29, 2010

Norman, Okla. (Jan. 21, 2009) - The word is out that Ideal Homes has accepted ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's challenge to build a new home for a special family in the Oklahoma City area. Ty Pennington and the design team will kick off the build when they knock on the door of one of five deserving families on Feb. 1.

"This is a community effort. In addition to the home we build for a deserving family, the entire metro area will benefit through the food and blood drives we are planning as part of this extraordinary week," said Todd Booze, Ideal Homes president of construction. "We hope that people from across the area will answer our call for support."

Ideal Homes has been absolutely amazed by the flood of Oklahomans who want to be a part of Ideal's Extreme build. One way you can get involved is by participating in Ideal's Extreme Food Drive.

"When the show came to us, we were excited not only about changing the life of a deserving family but by energizing residents of central Oklahoma to do something amazing for the entire community," Booze continued.

As Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has traveled throughout the United States filming over 170 episodes. They realized that even more could be given back to the community. That's why Ideal Homes has partnered with the United Way of Norman to collect 23,000 pounds of food. "The goal is large, but we're up for the challenge," Booze said, "and we need your help. Let's show everyone what central Oklahoma can do!"
