IRVINGTON, N.J.--On the May 21 airing of ABC-TV’s reality show, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, viewers may catch a glimpse of host Ty Pennington sipping a cup of Quick Chek coffee, the proprietary brand New Jersey convenience store.
Each week, Extreme Makeover Home Edition films a home renovation project for a family in distress by harnessing the resources of hundreds of volunteers to create a new home for the family.
For its part, Quick Chek, based in Whitehouse Station, N.J., erected a tent near the filming and staffed it with trained personnel who provided the Makeover volunteers with free coffee, cappuccino, ice coffee, fresh fruit, cookies, snacks, water and more.
In the May 21st show, Pennington’s volunteers work on behalf of an Irvington, N.J., woman who cares for eight special needs children in her house, which burned to the ground. Insurance provided enough money to cover her mortgage, but not enough to rebuild the house.
“We are delighted to be involved in this life changing event for a family in need,” said Quick Chek CEO Dean Durling. “It seems only fitting that we can help the volunteers through their intense reconstruction by offering food and beverages.”
