MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice-President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5
When someone took advantage of a paralyzed veteran, Andy Wise brought this to light, and help came in full force.
Andy shared the story of 83-year-old Army veteran Earnest Sanders Jr.
Sanders hired two unlicensed contractors to build a driveway and garage to help him with his disability and store his late wife's belongings.
Sanders was paralyzed in a car accident that killed his wife Ora Lee.
Sanders paid these contractors $40,000. They took his money and left him with a leaking garage that destroyed his late wife's stuff.
But that's not the end of the story.
Thirteen contractors are now working together to make this right for a man who gave his all for his country and didn't deserve this.
I have posted all of the contractors who are now stepping in to help Mr. Sanders on my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South.
Thank you to every single person who is helping and offered to help make this right. You are making this A Better Mid-South.
