Kids of Couple Killed in Superstorm Sandy Get Home Makeover

Reality home improvement show unveiled new digs for family Tuesday.

The four Everett children of Randolph have had a tough 15 months.

And the surrounding communities have done their best to ease the pain.

Their parents, Rich and Beth Everett, were killed by a felled tree on the night Superstorm Sandy made landfall in Morris County. They were driving through Mendham Township with their two sons when a towering arbor crashed down on front of the vehicle, instantly killing the parents.

The family owned Blue Crest Riding Center in Long Valley until it was sold in the spring of 2013.

In the time since, the quad of kids has been given an all-expense paid trip to Disney World by Mendham Township officials and had donations and aid sent to them from residents and businesses.

Now, according to a report on dailyrecord.com, NBC's home improvement show "George to the Rescue" has pitched in to help the kids with home repairs they could not handle themselves.

Zoe, 20, Talia, 18, Theo, 15, and Pierce, 12, spent three weeks at the Westin Governor Morris in Morristown while the renovations were made, and had the upgrades unveiled to them on Tuesday, the report said. 

The show's season premiere is scheduled for March 22, the report said, and the Everett's makeover is scheduled for the opener, but could change.
