Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will go to Joplin, Mo., to rebuild seven of the more than 7,000 homes destroyed by the May tornado. (If you need to be reminded of the devastation, check out these shocking images.)
The builder who’s leading the project, Millstone Custom Homes, is soliciting help and donations on a new web site, and Ty asks for volunteers in a video and directs volunteers to this web site. The build starts Oct. 19.
A press release says that the project has “the goal of providing ‘anchor’ construction that not only will directly benefit families in need, but also can provide the foundation for rebuilding an entire segment of the city’s decimated housing stock.”
