Joann has been very involved in the community, helping with the nonprofit “Following the Leader Ministries.”
Friday, the organization and the Home Depot Foundation teamed up to give back to the family.
“She [Joann] wants to like do stuff, and I’m like, no, let us help you. From what I understand, you’ve been helping everybody your entire life, so you sit back. Let us help you,” said Home Depot Community Captain Bryan Foster.
The work done to the home included painting and landscaping.
