Extreme Makeover: First Emanuel Baptist Church

True to our culture of giving back.

DonahueFavret renovated this historic church in 100 hours with help from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s crew. 

The entire project was provided pro bono with no cost incurred by the owner. 

The project required an immense amount of pre- planning and coordination. The renovation of the church consisted of four areas: the exterior of the building, the sanctuary, the gym/classroom/nursery, and the kitchen/ pantry area. Over 2,100 volunteers aided in the project, working at all hours of the day and night to keep the project on schedule.
