90 year old widow, Agnes, lives alone in Virginia Beach. Recently, Agnes found herself in a spot of bother. A relative had been repeatedly dumping his belongings in her yard, to the point where her neighbors started noticing that her home was cluttered and messy. However, instead of helping Agnes dispose of the junk, the neighbors decided to notify the authorities. When she told city hall that she was physically unable to clean up her messy yard, they threatened her with a fine of $2,500 per DAY!
Step forward Operation Blessing. OB are a not for profit humanitarian organization, committed to helping people in need, both at home and abroad. The group, along with volunteers from nearby University of Regent, immediately set about cleaning up Agnes’s yard. They cleared out all the trash, junk and debris, as well as an entire decrepit old trailer! The volunteers, who Agnes calls “angels” also fixed up her damaged roof.
Not content with just doing this, Operation Blessing decided to do a few ‘extras,’ planting flowers and laying a path, as well as many other things. They also give her an amazing surprise as a parting gift.
