CU-sponsored home makeover show airs on ABC
DUBLIN, Ohio (11/21/08)--Directions CU, Sylvania, Ohio, was the lead sponsor for a project to give a Toledo family a new home on Sunday’s episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” which aired on ABC. Parents Aaron and Jackie Frisch had three children, and adopted five Haitian boys and three boys from inner city Toledo out of their passion to help others. Two years ago, Jackie was diagnosed with a connective tissue disorder that caused her to undergo five surgeries, three strokes and partial paralysis, which she overcame, said the Ohio Credit Union League (eLumination Newsletter Nov. 19). Jackie quit her job as a counselor because of her health, and she and Aaron were unable to keep up with repairs on the family’s home. Aaron works as a firefighter. Directions CU provided hats for volunteers working on the Frischs’ new home. It also sold hats at the job site and other events, and donated the proceeds to the family. Directions also collected donations from the community and held a fundraiser for the family.
