Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
It all began with a television producer’s phone call asking KraftMaid to help a deserving family in need of a fresh start. Seasons later, we are proud to remain the exclusive cabinetry provider of ABC’s award-winning program, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
Episode 6The Harris Family
“Sweet” Alice Harris, who was named the Lieutenant Governor’s California Woman of the Year in 2002 for her endless efforts over the last 35 years to clean up the Watts neighborhood of South Central Los Angeles, needed some help of her own after a freakish storm (known as a super cell) dumped massive amounts of rain and flooded her home. A truly remarkable lady, Alice is a true community advocate and is willing to give anything she has to help others. She regularly takes in the homeless and cooks for up to 400-500 people at Thanksgiving out of her modest kitchen. Insurance did not cover the damage to the home, leaving Alice’s family to live out of one bedroom and desperately in need of a sweet miracle. The Extreme Home Makeover design team came to the rescue to completely remodel Alice’s home and KraftMaid designed and provided her with a fabulous kitchen worthy of such a great and giving woman.
