Barefoot and Company gives back alongside ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition
Charlotte, NC (January 2012) - Barefoot and Company, Inc., a local supplier and installer of specialty home products to builders, remodelers and homeowners, participated in the recent Charlotte build of ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Over the weekend of December 11th, several Barefoot and Company key managers volunteered onsite to assist with the build of the 4,000 square ft, eight-bedroom home for a local family in need.
In just under one week, and in nearly 170,000 man hours, ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition, partnering with Bellamy Homes and many local trade partners, tore down the Friday family's existing brick home and replaced it with a two-story home doubled in size; the family dwelling now has eight bedrooms, and was much needed to give room to the five children who were adopted in April of this year. Throughout the years, the Friday family has raised 30 adoptive children.
"We are very fortunate in times like these to have the Bob Barefoot Foundation and fantastic suppliers making things happen. We are a local supplier and installer of specialty products for the lead builder on this project, Bellamy Homes," tells Barefoot and Company Director of Operations Bill Green. "We were able to donate and install the shower doors, shelving in the closets, and door locks and hardware in the home. It took the entire Barefoot and Company family pulling together to make this work in the short amount of time, and I want to personally thank every Barefoot employee who worked with resolve and determination to make a difference in our community."
Barefoot and Company is no stranger to community involvement. Over the past year, it has helped many local charities and organizations including Charlotte Rescue Mission and Habitat for Humanity.
