90-year-old woman too fragile to clean up the mess in her yard; she calls on the help of volunteers, who save her from having to pay a daily fine of $2,500
Agnes Maple was just a sweet little 90-year-old grandmother that, at her age, found it difficult to get things done around the house. Too fragile to walk, let alone move heavy objects, poor Agnes found herself in a very unfortunate situation: for years, one of her relatives had been using her property as his own personal junk yard. In fact, his collection of junk became such a disgrace that one of Agnes's neighbors threatened to report her to the police and fine her $2,500 if she did not immediately get rid of the mess. That's when the sweet little grandmother decided to call on the help of Operation Blessing, a non profit organization that helps people in difficult situations. With the help of volunteers, Agnes was able to clean up her yard and avoid paying the fine.
The volunteers found that it was not only her yard that needed a pick me up; her house was also in a devestating state. Thanks to the volunteers at Operation Blessing, her home once again became a wonderful place to live. They didn't just stop at cleaning/picking up the property. They Also did several repairs (appliances in need of some tweaking) and bought her a new air conditioner!
The volunteers at Operation Blessing really outdid themselves. You don't hear of too many people who go over and beyond what is asked of them; especially when they are doing it for free. They wanted to show Agnes that they actually cared about her as a person and, therefore, her wellbeing.
Agnes's reaction to the volunteers' kindness and love was an emotional one. She even left many of the volunteers in tears when she expressed to them her gratitude.
Thank you Operation Blessing for all the work you do. You've really warmed our hearts with this story!
