In Fremont, California, David Perez saw his elderly neighbor climb up to his roof every Saturday and Sunday afternoon. David wasn’t sure why the 75-year old would climb up there but soon learned that the man was trying to repair some shingles on his roof. David sent out a plea for help on Facebook.
David said he didn’t have any roofing experience but was hoping someone would be able to help this man. The Saturday David asked for help to arrive – it arrived! Forty people came to help fix the roof, some people brought food, water, and snacks.
David’s neighbor, Richard, Dubiel had spent the last three months trying to fix his roof to prepare for the El Nino storms. He was thankful that David and some strangers came out to help him finish. In just four hours, the roof was done! Faith in humanity, restored. Share away, people!
