United Rentals Supports the Middleburg Community and "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"

Equipment rental company United Rentals is working around the clock in Middleburg this week, where employees are providing construction equipment and services to "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." The build is part of United Rentals' fourth year of partnership with the award-winning television show, which has relied on the industry leader for equipment and volunteers on more than 75 new home constructions.

The latest project benefits Carrie Prewitt and family she created when she took in three sisters whose parents had passed away. The United Rentals branch in nearby Gainesville is organizing the delivery of more than 70 pieces of equipment to the site, said Bill Kennedy, branch manager.

"Carrie and her three girls prove that families come together under all kinds of circumstances," said Kennedy. "Now the community has an opportunity to show our appreciation for the positive impact Carrie has made as coach and mentor to hundreds of children. My United Rentals team is proud to supply construction equipment, supplies and volunteers to help build this home."


Diane Korman, Senior Producer of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," said, "United Rentals comes through for us every time, despite the challenges of weather, timing and logistics. Their professionalism in serving these jobsites shows that we made the right choice in relying on United Rentals for our equipment needs."


The episode will air on ABC on a date to be announced.


Carrie Prewitt had been a beloved volleyball coach and counselor for more than 25 years when she heard about three sisters who were in danger of being separated after the death of both their parents. Carrie didn't hesitate to open her home to the Brewer sisters and has since become their permanent legal guardian. This close family has thrived despite a house that is far too small to accommodate three energetic girls. Now the "Brewitts," as they call themselves, will be given a beautiful new home by "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."
