KTVR-TV reports that in CALDWELL, Idaho a 73 year old homeowner woke up one morning to discover that her fence covered in graffiti.
"I came out and looked and it began at the front of my fence and went almost over to the gate, and I thought well it's going to take me all summer, but I can rub and scrub and get it off. So, I went and bought some graffiti removal stuff. I had been working about two or three hours when this car pulled up and a woman I later learned her name is Katie said, would you like some help? I said really. You mean you would help me? She said yes! She bounced out of the car and started helping me."
Katie Fuller, soon recognized how big this job was going to be. Katie is half owner of K&S Construction, said she'd be right back.
Katie returned with her team and even got her son and his friends involved. They pressure washed and repainted the fence, and replaced some of the panels where needed. One of the K&S crew, Bradley Anderson, says the experience is as much for them as it was for Sally. "Well, I personally like doing this stuff a lot," he says. "For Sally, I think it meant a lot to see everyone come out here and take their time out of their day and put forth the effort for her without asking for anything in return."
Sally was overwhelmed by the group’s effort and expressed her deep gratitude. "Thank you, thank you, thank you," the septuagenarian says, "I would be happy to pay them, but they won't let me." For Fuller and her crew, helping out a neighbor — now a new friend — and seeing her so pleased with the work was all the pay they needed.
