12,250 Gallons of Hope

Tucson, AZ (PressExposure) April 14, 2009 -- Even in a tough economy, people are still giving back and for Culligan Water, that means filling up. With ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover in town recently to help a Catalina Foothills girl, local businesses and residents lined up to help out. But before the 1,000 volunteers could scream “Move that bus!”, they first had to yell “Hey Culligan Man!”

In the middle of the show’s efforts were 14-year-old Lizzie Bell, who has a rare blood disease, along with her parents Michael and Kathleen. To build to the home quickly, the show needed to ask for some area support before it could pull its famous bus into the Bells’ driveway.

“We first got contacted to help fill the pool, so we showed up with two 6,000-gallon trucks,” said Rex Ruddick, manager of the local Tucson Culligan dealership. “Then we got a call about donating the water for the crew’s coffee. We knew when it came to a project like this, caffeine is as essential as hammers and nails and happily kept the coffee flowing. On top of that, we sent over 50 five-gallon water bottles for the food carters.”

Countless cups of coffee and 12,250 gallons of water later, the Bells walked into their new home.

The Bells’ segment of Extreme Home Makeover is set to air on March 22nd on ABC, please check local listings.
