An elderly woman’s home in Woburn, Massachusetts, is getting some much needed repairs thanks to a kindhearted electrician.
When John Kinney arrived at 72-year-old Gloria Scott’s house to fix a broken ceiling light in August, he quickly realized that was just one of her problems, according to CBS News.
“No lights, running water. I think I seen her on a Friday and it stuck with me over the weekend and I said, ‘I got to go back there,’” he recalled.
A few days later, he went back and started repairing her house at no charge and also created a Facebook page called “Nice old lady needs help” to raise money for the project and encourage other tradesmen to join his mission.
Once word got out, it became a massive community effort to renovate Scott’s entire home.
“This could be anybody’s mother, anybody’s grandmother,” said Kinney’s brother, Dan.
