A fund has been created and a guardian angel stepped forward for a 101-year-old Detroit woman displaced from her home by eviction.
A longtime member of her church took in the wheelchair-bound woman, whose son couldn’t keep up with the taxes. 68 year-old Polly Cheeks was a student in her Sunday school class long ago.
What’s more, after seeing the news report about the good Samaritan’s kindness, a St. Clair Shores-based contractor volunteered to build the wheelchair ramp needed at her new residence.
After her belongings were lost in the turmoil of eviction, neighbors set up a fund and donated money to get her new clothes and personal items.
