“I’d like to send a huge shout out to Valerie, a manager at Home Depot.
I came in tonight to pick up a refrigerator box that she was holding for me. We’re using the box to make my son’s wheelchair into a police car for Halloween. I first knew Valerie was awesome when she got down on the floor to cut the box down for me. She had beautiful nails and I told her that they weren’t meant for a box cutter and she said that her vest meant that she was made for whatever I needed!
After getting the box loaded, Valerie helped us brainstorm and find the other items we would need. We trekked all over that store with our creative genius. Then she took us to the check out and PAID FOR EVERYTHING HERSELF. I tried to refuse but she just said that it would bless her greatly. My son may not have understood anything other than she was kind and patient with him, but this special needs mama really, really appreciated this huge act of kindness. The biggest blessing for me was the way she treated my son and the way he responded to her. Thank you, Valerie, so much!!”
