Aimee Boyle Mcilroy wanted to turn her son’s wheelchair into a police car for Halloween this year. So she called her local Home Depot and talked to Valerie, a manager, who agreed to hold a refrigerator box for the costume. But once she got to the store, Valerie did so much more.
First, she got down on the floor to cut the box so it would fit into their car. Then she walked around the store with Mcilroy and her special needs son, helping them find every single thing they needed to make the perfect police car costume. Valerie even walked them to the checkout line and that’s when she insisted on paying the bill herself.
“I tried to refuse, but she just said that it would bless her greatly. My son may not have understood anything other than she was kind and patient with him, but this special needs mama really, really appreciated this huge act of kindness,” Mcilroy shared on Facebook. “The biggest blessing for me was the way she treated my son and the way he responded to her.”
