With everything going on in the world today, we’re always happy to bring you stories about communities coming together to support each other. That’s exactly what happened in Byron, Minnesota, when people pitched in to build a ramp and deck for a disabled Vietnam War veteran.
Bob McReynolds isn’t able to navigate the stairs on his home and now he doesn’t have to, thanks to two nonprofits and a crew of volunteers. Family Service Rochester and Two Rivers Habitat for Humanity organized the event, Meals on Wheels provided a grant for the project and the Home Depot Foundation kicked in for the funding. They even added a new flag pole for the 67-year-old after his was vandalized recently.
“I am so appreciative for all the hard work that everyone’s done,” Bob’s wife, Janice says. “They’re a blessing. A definite blessing.”
