GASTONIA, NC (WBTV) -
From the Navy to the Ministry, Pastor James Lowery has lived a life of service. Now volunteers are working to help him.
The 79 year old retired Baptist Minister - who served at Chapel Grove Baptist Church in Gastonia for 26 years, then twice at Temple Baptist Church - is recuperating in a rehabilitation center after back surgeries and a heart attack limited his mobility. Friends say Pastor Lowery is known for getting out and visiting people.
A Church in Gastonia asked Home Depot if the store could help. The Home Depot Foundation works with non profits and military organizations in need of improvement projects.
The Gastonia Home Depot teamed up with the local V-F-W to build a wheelchair ramp for Pastor Lowery.
"It's very fulfilling knowing these folks need help and we're in a position we could actually help them out " says Troy Macera, Manager of the Gastonia Home Depot.
The Home Depot Foundation donated about $2500 in materials, and associates volunteered to do the work at Pastor Lowery's house in Gastonia.
Macera says they're building a 4-foot wide ramp that is going straight up on to the deck and volunteers are also modifying the deck.
"This would mean everything for us as far as safety knowing I can get him in and out of the house when I need to" says Peggy Lowery, Pastor Lowery's wife. "I think it's wonderful that we have people like that who care and are able to do, and willing to do - giving of their time and resources."
Volunteers didn't forget about Peggy Lowery. Knowing she's the care giver, they say they wanted to surprise her.
"We're just trying to freshen up the front of the house for her and the flower beds she likes to work in to get it back to look like she likes it" says Lori Pearson, one of the volunteers from Home Depot.
Mrs Lowery told the group she hasn't had much time to tend to her flowers since her husband's illness. So volunteers did some landscaping for her.
Store manager Troy Macera says "it feels so good to help people that's what drives associates to volunteer their time and come out."
