GREENWOOD, DE—Atlantic Aluminum Products believes in supporting our local community and remains especially committed to improving the lives and welfare of children across the peninsula and throughout the world. The chance to donate the railing systems for the Believe in Tomorrow House by the Sea, in Ocean City, MD was an incredible opportunity for Atlantic Aluminum to give back for a great cause!
On a pleasant February day, under bright blue skies, Keyonda Weston stood in what will soon be her front yard, watching her new home being built. Volunteers with Atlantic Aluminum Products in Greenwood, were putting on the siding, nailing on roofing tiles and installing deck railings.
Atlantic Aluminum Products, a locally owned and operated company in Greenwood, Delaware was selected to take part in an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition selects deserving families from across the country that desperately need their homes remodeled. The show undertakes construction projects that typically take months and completes them in a few days. The Delaware episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is unique, because it will showcase the remodeling of not one, but two homes on Clayton Street in Wilmington. The Latif Family and their adopted Grandmother and neighbor, Rose Chatman are the deserving families who will have their homes rebuilt. Ms. Latif is a single mother of four who overcame homelessness, obtained an education, and succeeded in buying a home for her family. Unfortunately, the home is inaccessible to her youngest son who is in a wheel chair due to cerebral palsy. “Grandma Rose”, a retired librarian and seamstress, cares for the younger children during the day so Ms. Latif can work.
