Teltek was thrilled to be invited to participate in Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s latest project; construction of a facility for teenage girls in Northeast Baltimore for Girls Hope. Boys Hope Girls Hope, http://new.boyshopegirlshope.org/baltimore/About.aspx, is a nonprofit organization which empowers young people to reach their fullest potentials through community service and education. A facility already exists for the boys and the one under construction will serve as a safe haven for Baltimore’s teenage girls. According to ABC, this is the largest project Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has ever orchestrated.
Homesafe Security Systems, http://www.homesafesecurity.com asked us to join them in running cable for the phones, televisions, computers and security system. Seven Teltek team members arrived on site this past Sunday in their blue EMHE t-shirts and white hardhats to pull cable and install hardware. It was an amazing feeling to work alongside so many talented individuals toward a common and charitable goal. We will be posting photos of the experience to the Teltek website soon.
If you would like to contribute your skills, money or materials to the effort, please visit http://www.excelhomes.com/baltimoreextreme for a detailed outline of what exactly is needed to complete this extraordinary project.
