The Lowe’s hardware store business gave an Angel Award to staff in California who banded together to help a customer who had a serious fall in the parking lot.
Deborah Hayes told GNN that her elderly mother was shopping in the Modesto store at the time of the tragedy, and she described it as a ‘great story of people helping others.’
The elderly woman collapsed and struck her head on the concrete after losing her balance.‘There was blood everywhere,’she wrote to Lowes in a thank-you letter.
‘I was instantly encircled by a truly nice bunch of people, the majority of whom were your staff and another wonderful shopper.’
The nameless Good Samaritan was then welcomed back to Lowe’s for a surprise Angel Award ceremony, where she received a nice gift basket from the staff.
She had seized the senior’s house keys in exchange for bringing her shopping bags home and caring for her dog.
Employees gathered under a white balloon arch to honor one of their coworkers whose compassion went above and beyond.
Belia Villa received flowers, a crystal plaque, and a $500 cheque from the corporation.
Deborah’s mother, who had fully recovered from stitches, was also present and received a gift basket.
She thanked the two women who helped her, especially Belia, while store employees applauded.
