Extreme Makeover volunteers provide food for work crews

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - As volunteers continue to work on the Watson's new home, another set of volunteers are making sure everyone has a full stomach.

A few feet from the build site is a huge white tent with a banner saying "food."

Employees with Parkwest Medical Center and Green Mountain Coffee volunteered their time overnight by making sure volunteers building the home were fed.

"It's very rewarding," said Parkwest volunteer Tiffany Martin. "I guess just to be able to be here is a big honor, to help out the community is awesome."

The most requested item was water, but that did not stop volunteers from thinking outside the box. Parkwest Medical Center employees made a huge cake for volunteers.

They also provided breakfast from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m.

"This morning we are going to have scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, hash browns," said Martin. "It will be a good breakfast for the guys."

Everyone at the food tent had a different reason for coming out to help.

"I wanted to come out and just be part of this, part of the community, and help represent Knoxville," said Parkwest volunteer Lauren Deason.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided for all volunteers until the project is complete.
