Summit agent gives back

Tommy Folsom, of Florida Insurance Consultants of Monticello Inc., and his wife Amy, recently joined thousands of community volunteers in rebuilding the home of a family in need for ABC’s popular show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

“We helped coordinate the on-site volunteers for various labor tasks and bring supplies in from the delivery location. We also helped coordinate the food, drinks and gifts in the VIP tent,” said Folsom. He and Amy spent hours there each day and night of the weeklong project.

“Just to be involved with a project like this and take part in giving something back to a family that has given so much themselves was an incredible experience,” he said. “Our area is so blessed to be a close-knit community, and we really care about one another. With all of the negative stories you hear these days and the hard times that everyone is facing, it is great to see the community come together. Your time is one of the most precious gifts you can give.”

The episode, which was filmed in Tallahassee, Florida, aired on ABC on Easter Sunday, April 12, 2009.
