Home Depot workers build toddler’s walker

CEDARTOWN, Ga. ― Parents of a two-year-old with muscle disorder went to their local Home Depot to get supplies to make a walker, only to be surprised when store employees stepped up to the task for themselves. Christian and Justin Moore, whose son Logan has hypotonia, looked to YouTube for a tutorial on building a gait trainer. The boy’s physical therapist recommended purchasing one, but as the couple didn’t believe their health insurance would cover it they turned to DIY alternatives made with PVC pipe.

Armed with a list of supplies, they went to ask Home Depot staff for advice. Instead, to Christian’s shock, they were met by a store manager and another employee. “They started getting the parts together and told us they would put it together and would not charge us for it,” she said. “They told us to go get ice cream and come back in an hour.” The finished product was even personalized with Logan’s name. “I am grateful … that there are still good people around to help,” said Christian.
