So grate­ful for kind peo­ple

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

ON two sep­a­rate oc­ca­sions, I have gone into Elite Car­pets on St. Anne’s Road look­ing for some as­sis­tance in solv­ing a prob­lem.

I ex­plained that my hus­band suf­fers from ALS and uses a power wheel­chair. While this is cer­tainly an ef­fi­cient method of trans­porta­tion for him, early on we dis­cov­ered that the wheel­chair was track­ing in grit and se­verely mark­ing up our hard­wood floors.

Both times, staff man­aged to find a piece of car­pet that would serve our needs nicely.

Both times, I was in­formed there would be no charge.

Both times, staff car­ried the car­pet out to my ve­hi­cle and wished me well.

As an ALS pa­tient’s needs are rapidly and con­stantly chang­ing, it be­comes a disease that can in­cur a great fi­nan­cial bur­den. The thought­ful ac­tion of Elite Car­pets not only elim­i­nated an added ex­pense, it also made us feel so grate­ful there are folks like you around.

Thank you, Elite Car­pets, for your gen­eros­ity and kind­ness.
