I can’t believe this kind of community still exists out there

Next day, though, everything changed. Nearly 100 people showed up to help the family. “They worked in pouring rain, foot thick mud and manure, to clean up broken bits of metal, nails, wire, even skeletons,” Jantra wrote, amazed.

Several pizza places brought food for the volunteers who kept busy till late in the evening. Hardware stores sent equipment. Locals collected donations and looked after the animals who needed vet care and feed.

Jantra’s mother and stepfather are scout leaders who do a lot of work for the local charities. So, when they needed help themselves, people rushed to aid.

“I can’t believe this kind of community still exists out there,” Jantra said. “It’s absolutely amazing.”
