Extreme Team gives Wounded Warrior a hand

The KXLY 4 Extreme Team kicked off a week of projects early Tuesday morning by teaming up with the Wounded Warrior Project to help one of their own.

Tuesday the group spent the early morning hours cleaning and fixing things around Darel Maxfield’s home in Spokane. Maxfield, a former teacher at Ferris High School, was also a colonel in the U.S. Army and served in Iraq, where he trained Iraqi forces. Before redeploying for a second tour in Afghanistan he suffered a stroke and was unable to go overseas.

So the Extreme Team, along with some wounded warriors, decided to give Maxfield a hand with his house. The team put in new light fixtures and Avista donated new energy efficient lights; his carpets and furnace ducts were cleaned by Zerorez while Maid Brigade cleaned the rest of the house.

While crews worked on the inside of the house, others worked through the late morning and afternoon cleaning up Maxfield’s yard and trimmed some of his trees.

“It’s a far kinder act than I can possibly describe to you and a far greater gift that they gave me than I can ever thank,” Maxfield said.
