ABC�S �EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION� COMES TO THE AID OF
A CARING GRANDMOTHER AND HER FOUR GRANDCHILDREN WHO
ARE LIVING IN A TRAILER HELD TOGETHER BY DUCT TAPE
Hootie and the Blowfish Perform at a Fundraiser Concert
�Wilson Family� -- Ty and the gang will help build a new home for the Wilson family of Longs, SC, who have been living in their grandmother�s run-down trailer, on �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,� SUNDAY, MARCH 25 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Hakeem, Tim, RJ and Erica Wilson live in the cramped quarters of their grandmother�s trailer. Natalie Wilson, who did not want to split the children up in the foster care system years ago, has been working as a school lunch lady to help support her grandchildren. Although this is the most stable home the Wilson children have ever lived in, it is still an undersized trailer that�s literally held together with duct tape, has a sagging roof, bad wiring, leaks and little to no insulation. Blankets and plastic are kept over the windows to keep warm air in, and Natalie�s youngest grandchild, Erica, has to share a bed with her at night. Despite the Wilson children�s poor living conditions, their teachers have seen a vast improvement in the kids since they moved in with their grandmother. When asked what the children would like in their dream home, they all responded with the same answer -- �my own dresser,� since all four children must share a closet and dresser. Natalie just wants a safe home for her grandchildren that will provide them with a better sense of security and allow them to thrive.
In this episode of �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,� the Wilson family will finally be able to move out of their trailer and into a more comfortable and safer new home.
In addition, music group Hootie and the Blowfish perform at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach in a fundraiser concert for the family.
While Ty and the designers, local builder Hall Custom Homes and Classic Home building & Design and hundreds of volunteers and workers are rebuilding their home in a remarkable seven days, the Wilson family will go on vacation to Walt Disney World.
The design team for this episode of �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� will feature team leader Ty Pennington and designers Paul DiMeo, Preston Sharp, Tracy Hutson and Tanya McQueen.
