Sometimes Life Throws Us a Curveball

Monday, December 07, 2015

Sometimes life can throw us a curve ball, and we end up in situations that are beyond our control.  As unpredictable as life can be, it’s nice to know that help is out there when we need it. 

Out of a job due to health circumstances, a client contacted GROW South Dakota because her furnace quit working.  Little did she know, that wasn’t the only time she would be utilizing the services that GROW SD has to offer. 

After some time had passed, the client fell ill again, and at that time her refrigerator was going bad and her stove was in dire need of repair.  In all, this client was able to receive a new furnace, refrigerator and bathroom fan, as well as have her stove repaired and ductwork in the home replaced.  The Weatherization staff even took the time to install some new light bulbs that the client refers to as “awesome”.

When asked how she felt about the experience of working with GROW SD, the client stated; “It seems like everything broke down at once, including me, and they were able to get everything fixed up.  I can finally cook again, I love how quiet my new bathroom fan is, the fridge is great, and the furnace is wonderful!  It’s nice to be warm again on a cold day.” 

She continued to say; “All of the workers were very nice.  They did a good job on everything.  We appreciate everything they have done.  Thank you so very much.”
