LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – There was a significant police presence at a Lexington house Thursday early morning, but not for a cause you may well be expecting.
Officer Ryan Holland, with the community’s assistance, surprised a Lexington woman with a household makeover.
Just a few months in the past, Sylvania Bell’s dwelling was what Officer Holland calls “unliveable.”
“You could soar up and down on this ground like a trampoline the complete household would bounce,” Holland claimed.
Given that then, $90,000 well worth of renovations reworked the residence Bell has lived in her entire lifestyle.
“I just hope that she knows that she’s cared for,” mentioned Officer Holland. “People in this neighborhood adore her and she’s got a harmless household now.”
From floor to ceiling, every little thing in the home has been replaced. Before, Bell used just about anything she could to prevent her outdated roof from leaking, even tacking sheet pans to the ceiling.
“Those are for baking, not putting on your ceiling no a lot more,” stated Holland.
Now, Bell is back again in her newly restored property, just in time for Xmas.
“Oh, it’s stunning. Oh, I just appreciate almost everything. I ain’t by no means been so content in my lifestyle,” stated Bell.
By means of Officer Holland’s nonprofit corporation, Restore Hope, Holland has been ready to aid lots of neighborhood members. He states he hopes to assist even more in the upcoming.
