WICHITA, Kan. – Cargill’s Wichita-based meat business joined many other area companies in contributing to the success of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition home build benefitting former Wichita State University All-America baseball player Carl Hall, who has been paralyzed from the neck down since a June 26, 2010 car accident in Kingman County. The show selected Hall and his family –wife Stacey and four children –to receive an all-new home that is wheelchair accessible throughout.
Cargill donated a variety of its Sterling Silver® Premium Meats beef and pork cuts to stock the freezer in the Hall family’s new home, which will be unveiled to them on Thursday, Feb. 24. To help the Hall family with preparing their selection of meats and further enjoy their new home, Cargill is also donating a grill.“
We at Cargill and the Sterling Silver brand are so proud to help the people at Extreme Makeover: Home Edition as they deliver this wonderful new home to Carl Hall and his family,” said Ozlem Worpel, brand manager, Sterling Silver Premium Meats. “The show and its producers always do things right, and we wanted to make sure that not only the Halls but also all of the wonderful supporters of this project received the best premium meats to enjoy.”
