Springfield, Mo. (Jan. 4, 2011) - Faith Technologies, a full-service electrical and technology systems contractor, participated in the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition build in tornado-ravaged town of Joplin, Mo. Crews built seven homes in seven days as part of the show’s effort to help the members of the community get back on their feet. The Joplin episode will air Friday, Jan. 13.
General contractor Millstone Custom Homes approached Brian Davis, Faith Technologies’ Springfield, Mo., branch service manager, to provide the electrical services for one of the seven homes. Crews from Faith Technologies performed electrical services on the Walters’ family home.
“We’re thrilled to be part of this inspiring project,” said Davis. “The people of Joplin have been put through so much devastation, and the Walters family is no exception. It was great to see members of the community, local businesses and the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team ban together to help build Joplin back up, and Faith Technologies is proud to be part of those efforts.”
This marks the second time Faith Technologies has teamed up with an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition project. In 2010, crews from the Faith Technologies Menasha, Wis., branch performed electrical work at a Neenah, Wis. home.
