CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - More than 4,00 people in the Channel 3 viewing area have volunteered to help with the Big Hearts extreme home makeover. The ABC show will be in town on February 13 to begin filming their episode.

If you registered to volunteer online, you should have received an email confirming that the project team has your information. Volunteer coordinators are working with the lead build team to identify how many volunteers are needed and when.

There will be times during the construction when lots of people are needed and other times when they are not. The need is completely driven by the construction schedule and the project teams asks for everyone's flexibility. The construction schedule is literally changing daily.

You should receive a confirmation or decline by February 11. Volunteers will be scheduled in the order they were received into the system for those particular time slots. All other submissions will be placed on a waiting list.

The Big Hearts team says it wants the maximum number of people are able to experience this opportunity. However, the reality is that not all volunteers will be able to help. Remember, spectators are welcome to the build site any time, day or night.

Channel 3 Eyewitness News will be there every step of the way to help tell the community's story. Click here for our official Big Hearts project page.
