Here is one of my stories!

One full year after a tornado ripped the Strawberry Mobile Home Park apart, many residents are amazingly still trying to pick up the pieces.

Earlier this week, we introduced you to an elderly lady who still couldn’t afford to have a damaged tree removed that threatened to fall on her trailer. But, a News 2 viewer jumped to action to extend a Problem Solver Helping Hand.

Van Atkins, the owner of Van’s Tree Service, was so moved by the plight of Bergetta Driggers that he came to her rescue.

Early this morning he and his crew removed the damaged tree and stump. Not only were they unsightly, but the tree could have easily killed Driggers if it fell on her trailer.

She said it’s been an unbelievably hard year and she is surprised someone cared enough about her to help.

The services totaled to around $800 and Driggers says she simply would not have been able to afford such an expense
