08 Jan Seniors Receive All They Need for Their Homes
DONATION: THE HOME DEPOT HOME IMPROVEMENT SUPPLIES
LIVES IMPACTED: 17
Rock Spring Young at Heart, in Rock Spring, WY, helps low income senior citizens who do not have easy access to home improvement items and other necessities. They are able to stop at our center to pick up those items that they need. Recipients of The Home Depot items from Good360 were those who, without this amazing donation, would have had a difficult time obtaining what they needed for their home. While some seniors simply needed window coverings, others found that, as they or their spouse has had to transition into a wheelchair, they could no longer move about their house through thick carpet. They benefited from the donated flooring that we had installed in their homes. These donated items have helped Young at Heart to provide assistance that allows our clients to remain living in their own home and avoid institutionalization. Without these items, some recipients would have found it difficult to make the necessary home modifications that have allowed them to remain independent. This donation has truly made a difference.
An elderly lady came to us after recovering from her recent battle with cancer. Her mobile home was in disrepair, presenting serious challenges and safety risks. After receiving numerous doctor’s bills, she was unable to purchase the items she needed to finish repairing her home. After hearing of the donated items available, she came to us and found many of the items she needed. She can now continue living independently. As the items were delivered to her house, she was overcome with emotions. She began crying and gave the delivery person a hug. This is all possible because of donors like The Home Depot and Good360. Thank you!
