North Carolina disaster relief skilled laborers are needed Thursday all day and Friday morning to help meet a deadline for ABC television’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
Gaylon Moss, who directs North Carolina Baptist Men’s disaster relief efforts and volunteer services, put out a call Wednesday for skilled labor from regions 1-6 to complete a home for a Gulf War veteran in Jamesville, east of Williamston, who is still suffering from illnesses contracted there.
Moss said all sorts of saws, nail guns and general tools will be available at the site. Extreme Makeover needs skilled labor to finish a steep metal roof and attach siding, which is a composite made to look like a log cabin. It had not been started Wednesday and is difficult to install.
The show’s producers need it finished Thursday night because that’s when decorators go in to do the finish work. The recipient family arrives at 1 p.m. Friday.
The owner is a veteran with Gulf War syndrome, meaning he has MS and is in a wheel chair. The work is high and requires great skill, Moss said.
