Review for Blessings In Disguise, Maumee, OH, USA
My story is a little different than most.My husband is a carpenter and I work full time and going to nursing school. We both like helping others when ever we can. I have a neighbor that has Huntington's Chorea and her son has Cerebral Palsy and their bathroom floor was rotting which made the bathroom unsafe. We don't have a lot of money but when I got my refund from school we bought the supplies to remodel their bathroom. We ripped out everything and we didn't realize until we ripped the bathtub out that we were going to need a plumber to reroute the drain so we could put a walk in shower in. My husband has been laid off periodically this year and we are always trying to play catch up. So we didn't have the money to hire a plumber. I asked around and was given the name of the Non-Profit Agency Blessings in Disguise so I got on the computer and went to their website. I filled out the online form and then waited to hear something. Not to long after filling out the online form I got an email from Mr. Sayre and from there Blessings in Disguise went to work. First they started looking for a plumber that would do the work as a donation and after awhile they couldn't find someone to do the work as a donation so Blessings in Disguise were gracious enough to help pay for a plumber. So the drain was rerouted and my husband finished my neighbors bathroom. I met up with Mr. Sayre and we started talking and he has even taken on to help my husband and I get our credit on track so we can eventually can buy our own home. Now mind you my husband and I have never owned our own home and we have been married for 15 years. We have always wanted our kids to get a good education so we have always paid so much in rent so we could stay in a good school district. He even checks in with me to see how things are going. He is an awesome person and truly has helping others in his heart!! Thank you for everything and I mean this from the bottom of my heart!!
