Community rallies to build home for disabled couple
"To go from living in the trailer that was falling down around us to be able to say, 'Wow this is mine,' was just an overwhelming feeling."
- Jay Allan, new homeowner
Salem, New Brunswick, Canada - Five months, $12,000 and the helping hands of 25 volunteers have built a new house for a New Brunswick couple.
When Carr saw the conditions Charlotte, who has the spine deformity scoliosis, and Jay, who is paralyzed from the waist down from a workplace accident nine years ago, were living in, he rallied members at Hillsborough Baptist Church to build a new home for the Allans.
