What started as people complaining about an overgrown yard turned into a three-day effort to help an 80-year-old Air Force veteran.
The neighbor found the elderly homeowner working in the yard, wheezing from emphysema. That’s when he knew he needed to step in and help out.

When neighbors found out what was going on, they started to show up to help out as well. At one point, about 20 volunteers showed up to help clear the yard.
