A while ago I got the chance to help a man in our area out after he had a terrible accident. (click on links below to get the details)
It was a great experience for all involved. As lead organizer of the home construction, I was able to use my design and management skills along with my connections in the building industry to help get Jerry into a nice, efficient new home, that suited him very well and within a very limited budget, before the cold weather hit.
So many people (partial list below) including the county permitting department and health department pitched in their best effort. Tons of local people and businesses were involved in this wonderful story.
I would encourage anyone who has the opportunity to help a neighbor, coworker, friend, or just someone who is in need of any sort, to go for it. Be a light in your world and you don’t have to do in alone. reach out and ask people to join you in helping out. All will be grateful.
A huge thanks to all who helped or donated and helped make a happy ending to a tragic event.
Here are a few links about the project for your to enjoy.
