I called Ron Weatherhead*, manager of the Home Depot on Hwy 190. We do not know each other. I explained the project, "not asking for a donation, but any discount would be greatly appreciated." He, his team and Home Depot donated 100% of the materials.
My friend Don Brunies always says, "anything I can ever do to help." Well, we need the wood picked up and delivered. My ask with him was not looking good - no truck, no trailer. Just then, his neighbor, Jerry Taylor** walks outside to check the mail. Don calls him over. With Jerry's help, Don and Jerry deliver the materials. Thanks to all : )
