A couple in Gaston County, North Carolina is getting some much needed home repairs thanks to some generous folks in their community. Wade and Louise Lunsford’s home had a leaky roof with holes in it and when it would rain, water constantly leaked in, but they couldn’t afford the thousands it would cost to repair it.
They had been getting by using tubs to catch the rainwater inside the house, sometimes having to empty them in the middle of the night, but one of their relatives started a GoFundMe page to help the Lunsfords out. And that caught the attention of Brandon Johnson,who owns Southern Star Roofing and Construction, and he offered to replace the couple’s roof for free. On top of his generosity, ABC Supply provided the materials and Providence Restoration repaired the water damage inside the home.
"Step up; reach out; pay it forward," Johnson says, challenging other business owners. "I think if we're blessed with those kinds of resources, it's our job to give it back."
