Irby again supports home makeover show
JACKSON — Stuart C. Irby Co. recently showed its support to the ABC television show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” by donating electrical supplies to the home of Hattiesburg’s “hometown hero,” military veteran Sherman Heathcock.
Filmed in Hattiesburg, the show aired March 21.
Doug Walo, Irby vice president of commercial/contractor sales, said, “Irby is proud to have been a part of this project to give back to this soldier who has given so much for the freedom of our country.”
Heathcock re-enlisted in the Army National Guard post-9/11 and has served two tours of duty in Iraq. A husband and father, Heathcock’s home was heavily damaged in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina.
This marked Jackson-based Irby’s second contribution to the television show. In 2008, the company helped rebuild Noah’s Ark Missionary Baptist Church in New Orleans.
