Watsons thank volunteers for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition work


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Daniel and Mandy Watson, the couple who received a new home as part of the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition program in West Knoxville, took today to thank volunteers for helping to build their new home.

The family invited volunteers to West Towne Christian Church to share their memories and tell the Watsons how they helped on the construction.

"Even before the door knock, we really wanted to figure out how to really thank a community," said Daniel Watson. "There's no perfect way to do it. We thought this would be a great opportunity to have people come out and they can share their stories with us, we'd love to hear them, and you know, just getting to shake a lot of hands and meeting some of the folks involved."

More than 3,000 volunteers helped build the Watsons a new home, along with two smaller homes for their Restoration House charity.

Their Extreme Makeover: Home Edition special with air this fall on WATE.
