GOOD NEWS: Home Depot Workers Build Perfect Mailbox For Kid With Autism

posted by @HoustonOnAir - 


Denise Haight was shopping at her Home Depot in Gaylord, Michigan, looking for ideas for her grandson Cameron’s seventh birthday present. A pair of employees, Gary and Lorel, offered to help and Haight told them Cameron has autism and that he’s fascinated by mailboxes, so she was considering putting one together for him to play with.

The Grandma brainstormed with the Home Depot associates for a few minutes and Gary told her he had a few ideas and to trust him and return Saturday morning. Haight did and when he came around the corner pushing a handcart with the mailbox on top, she teared up with excitement.

“I asked him if there was a tag on the box so I could pay at the checkout and he said, “There is no charge for the mailbox, tell that little boy Happy Birthday from Home Depot’,” Haight recalls. She says the mailbox was perfect, filled with a Home Depot apron, a stuffed bear, and a few toys inside. And Cameron can move it from room to room and play with it as much as he wants.
