Meal A Day Drivers and Lowe’s Make Wish Come True for a Needy Shut-In

During a normal delivery morning of Meal a Day meals, two volunteer drivers discovered a real Christmas wish by a housebound homeowner whose is on their regular route. Here’s the story as told by Karon Weatherman, Seniors Center Director.

“This is a story of a very sweet woman whose storm door and front door were falling apart. Loyd and Mary Ivey deliver Meal A Day to her, her husband and her son every Monday. The couple took duct tape and did the best they could to repair the storm door. They went to one place in town for help and they said no, they could not help. Then, they went to Lowe’s in Sulphur Springs to ask if they could assist with this community need,  and the manager, Russell, said not only would they replace the storm door but he would get them a new door as well. It took a lot of persistence and help from God but Ms. Lou Ella has two new doors. Merry Christmas to a sweet lady and her precious family. And thanks to Lowe’s for caring about our community!”
