Extreme family, Swepco make donation to Food Bank

MINEOLA, TX (KLTV) -

MINEOLA, TX (KLTV) - Last month, the Carr family got the gift of a lifetime. Now, they are helping to give a little back.

Extreme Makeover family man Mike Carr and his kids joined Swepco to donate $500 to the East Texas Food Bank.

It is part of the food drive that was going on while East Texans were helping to build the Carr's new home in Mineola.

The Carr family made a donation of food to the pantry also. We caught up with them to see how they are settling in.

"No writing on the walls, but the kids love it," said Mike Carr. "They're running up and down the halls, and it's great to have a place where everyone is comfortable, and can get around and do anything they want to in the house...safely."

Friday's donation from Swepco will help the East Texas Food Bank provide 4,000 meals to East Texans in need.
