Sailors Helping Build New Home for VA Family

The Navy's joining in the effort to create a new home for a Virginia Beach family with six foster kids.

Ten sailors are assisting Thursday in the construction of the new home for Beverly Hill and Fred Burdette, who have been chosen for the television show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

The sailors are with the port operations department of Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story.

Hill has helped raise more than 35 foster children over 15 years. The family also makes meals and delivers them to the needy.

Sailors are also pitching on the food front, collecting donations for local food banks. That effort continues through Monday.
