Gloria’s Gladiators About a month ago, an elderly woman by the name of Gloria Scott noticed her overhead light fixture had begun shooting sparks out of the socket. In a panic, Gloria ran to her neighbor’s house to ask for help and was given the number of a local electrician.
Gloria’s Gladiators Even though money was tight, Gloria immediately dialed the number to ask for the services of the local electrician…but she was going to receive so much more.
Gloria’s Gladiators John Kinney, the electrician who Gloria had called, assessed the damages to her home and knew the cost of repairs was going to be far beyond her budget.
According to Kinney:
“When I arrived at Gloria’s house I discovered that the electrical was in very bad shape. Half her lights were out, she had no stove, and her refrigerator was plugged into an extension cord.”
Gloria’s Gladiators “I fixed her immediate electrical hazards and got her lights and air conditioning on. When all the lights came on, I saw that her ceilings were falling apart, her kitchen sink was broken, and that the place was filthy.”
Gloria’s Gladiators “She told me that critters often got in the house. The outside was no better. Gutters were falling down and it was surrounded by a jungle. She has no family, and money is tight.”
Gloria’s Gladiators Kinney knew that the cost of repairs was going to be far beyond Gloria’s budget, but that wasn’t going to stop him from helping the elderly woman out.
Gloria’s Gladiators “I got some volunteers together and we went in there and did a ton of yard work and cleanup. Everyone did an amazing job, and this nice old woman was very grateful. It’s simply just not enough though.”
Gloria’s Gladiators “She has some serious plumbing issues that need to be corrected. There is extensive drywall repair to be done. A massive amount of painting. Her front porch brick steps are an accident waiting to happen.”
Gloria’s Gladiators “I’m not looking to rebuild her whole house. I just want to make it safe and livable for her. I have a network of skilled professionals that will donate their time to this cause.”
Gloria’s Gladiators But there was still one problem – the materials were going to be expensive. Kinney decided to start a fundraiser asking people for donations to repair Gloria’s run-down house, and that’s where things really took off.
Gloria’s Gladiators After hearing about Gloria’s predicament, people from around the country began sending in donations to help afford the repairs – over $100,000 worth.
Gloria’s Gladiators Thanks to John Kinney, his network of good-hearted tradesmen (who have since been named Gloria’s Gladiators), and the selfless people who donated to the cause, Gloria will finally be able to live in a safe place to call home.
Now, that’s a movement we here at theCHIVE can certainly get behind.
