LINCOLNTON, N.C.,None — Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is set to reveal the new home it spent the last week building for a Lincolnton family, but aside from the new home, the show revealed another surprise to the family.
The Friday family also received the surprise Saturday. The crew of Extreme Makeover spent the week also building The House of Hope, a neighborhood resource center on North Aspen Street. It will supply people in need with everything from food to clothing to appliances.
The show spent the last week stocking the building with donations from people across Lincoln County.
Devonda Friday said she has always dreamed of running a help center.
"Speechless. I just can't believe it. Just being able to know that we're going to be able to help the community and to know that all the prayers that we have been praying have been answered," Said Friday.
The Fridays were also told the rent on the store has been paid for the next two years.
The Fridays were chosen by Extreme Makeover for taking in more than 30 foster children over the years. The family recently adopted five siblings.
