This community is setting a new standard for what it means to “love thy neighbor”.
Every night for the last 10 years, the men of Sandy, Utah have taken turns making sure that Kathy Felt gets to bed safely and comfortably.
Since Felt has multiple sclerosis, she slowly lost control of her motor functions. As her disease progressed, she lost the ability to get out of bed in the morning and it seemed as if she would have to be checked into a nursing home.
But Keith Pugmire was not willing to let his neighbor be forced out of her home due to her disease – so he recruited the help of 60 men in the neighborhood to volunteer their assistance.
Pugmire orchestrated a rotating schedule in which two men show up at Felt’s house in the evening so they can lift her out of her wheelchair and into bed. They remove her socks, cover her with the blankets, and turn off the light before leaving the house.
In the morning, Felt’s son arrives to take care of her throughout the day – but in the evening, the neighborhood men pick up the slack.
Ten years later, the men are still volunteering and Felt still gets emotional over the “miracle” of her compassionate neighborhood.
