We are just days away of finding out who the lucky family in the Medford area will be that will receive an Extreme Edition Home Makeover. With all the excitement comes A pep rally, right. The pep rally was held at South Medford Gymnasium with about 7 to 800 people in attendance. Several Medford area businesses and individuals donated supplies and services to make this exciting night happen.
On September 7th, we will all find out who, what, and where this will all take place. For weeks, Extreme Makeover Home Edition has been the social media buzz in the Medford, Jackson County area. Even businesses in Josephine County are stepping to the plate donating services and money.
An account for the Extreme Makeover Family Fund has been opened and donations can be made at any and all PremierWest Bank locations. PremierWest Bank is also selling bracelets at all their Jackson and Josephine Counties branches for just $3 with all the proceeds going to the Extreme Makeover Home Edition Medford Oregon Family Fund.
More Medford area businesses have stepped up in the Facebook ‘like’ campaign by donating a $1 a ‘like’. Some are close to halfway to their goal of a 1,000 ‘likes’ but they’ll all continue to need your help. Here are the list and links to the Medford and Grants Pass area businesses that are participating. I would encourage you to help and just click the link and hit ‘like’.
PremierWest Bank, Airport Chevrolet, Southern Oregon Subaru, Dollar Buick GMC, Spring Air Heating and Cooling InfoStructure, Batzer Construction, Black Rock Coffee Bar – Biddle Rd, Grants Pass Heating and Air Conditioning Butler Automotive Group, Fusion Dance Academy, Northwest Community Credit Union, Rogue Valley Country Club, Taprock Northwest Grill Grants Pass, and Angus Driving Service
The Rogue Valley Association of Realtors has donated $1000 to the Family/Build Fund and does not have a Facebook page so give their website a hit just to say thank you. Gates Home Furnishings is donating $18,000 of furniture and certainly deserves a ‘like’ for that.
KDRV did a nice story on Extreme Make over coming to Medford if you missed it here is the link. With less than a week to go a lot still needs to be done. More volunteers are needed as well as more businesses to step up to the Facebook $1 a ‘like’ challenge. It’s easy to keep up to date on Extreme Makeover Home Edition Jackson County Facebook page. They’re nearing 3,000 ‘likes’ and will probably surpass that by the time I hit publish.
It is amazing what can happen when businesses and individuals work for a common cause, and this opportunity certainly represented a big opportunity to do something really impressive for a deserving family.
