Cedartown, Georgia Home Depot Surprises Disabled Toddler with Free Walker
These employees really gave customer service a new meaning.
We're simultaneously smiling and crying here, dear readers.
Earlier this month at a Home Depot in Cedartown, Georgia, some staffers jumped at the opportunity to help out a two-year-old boy, Logan Moore. The youngster has a muscle disease called hyptonia, also known as floppy baby syndrome, which makes it difficult for him to walk.
All it took was some kind strangers and employees of this Peach State Home Depot to step in and make a difference in this toddler's life and his family's by building and gifting them a free walker.
"So today a lady and her mother and husband came in telling us that the insurance company may or may not pay for their little boys walker so they went on the internet and found plans to make one out of PVC pipe so my store manager heard about this and we went over to them looked at their plans and said we got this so we started putting it together told the family to go and enjoy ice cream and come back in a hour," writes one of the Home Depot employee, Jeffrey Anderson, in a recent Facebook post.
"Other associates started jumping in and when the family came back it was done. Everyone was crying to see Logan walk around with the biggest smile on his face and when the family tried to pay us we said no way this one is on us. Thank [sic] to all that help and for being a blessing to this family and to this little guy," Anderson continues.
