Leggett & Platt Teams with "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"
WHITTIER, Calif.-Leggett & Platt Consumer Products Group has joined forces with "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," the ABC network show, in which the company has donated three Leggett & Platt Fashion Bed products to recently filmed episodes.
The first, one of the company's Euro platform beds, was included in the Nov. 18 episode which featured the makeover of the Dunning family home in Cool Spring, Del. The Fashion Bed Sasha and Miami ornamental beds will be part of a future episode, focusing on the rebuilding of Joplin, Mo., which was severely damaged by tornadoes last May.
"Many Leggett & Platt employee partners live in Joplin, as it is just a town over from our headquarters in Carthage (Mo.), and many of our own employee partners were profoundly affected by the tornadoes back in May," said Rob Woods, president of the Consumer Products Group. "Being involved in this episode was very important to us."
