Support of Lady Lightning Softball Team
The Lady Lightning’s manager Chris “Turtle” Wilson thanked us:
“I am so appreciative for everything Giant Development INC has done for Lady Lightning. Their generous donations made it possible to jump-start our local softball team. With the help of Giant Development, Lady Lightning was able to hire the best coaches possible and buy all the best equipment. Their CEO Tony Crabtree went above what was asked of him, I couldn’t imagine having a better sponsor for Lady Lightning. Thank you Giant Development!”
Charity Work for St. Michael the Archangel Church
Our team cleared land to add a proper paved road next to the second rectory and conference center of the church’s campus as a part of our charity work.
Monsignor Douglas P. Peed said:
“The driveway work that you did last summer for our 2nd rectory has been a Godsend! And the road next to the Conference Center has not only made our ball fields more accessible, especially for our seniors, but you’ve cleaned up a tremendous eyesore as well. Rather than speechless, I am simply more grateful than I can possibly express! I really appreciate all you are doing!”
Getting the Job Done Right for a Goldsboro Family
In November of 2017, Goldsboro grandmother Lisa Mooring hired a local concrete business owner, to convert her gravel driveway to a concrete slab to help her grandson Arian get around more easily. Arian has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and has difficulty walking and riding his adaptive bicycle on unstable gravel and is at a higher risk of injury. Due to the high cost of the work, Lisa applied for a grant through local MD charity, 4 Jake’s Sake who paid the contractor $2,000 to do the work, who said it would be done in a few days.
One year later, Lisa still had the same gravel driveway. The contractor took the money, then never showed up to do the work.
Stepping in to Lend a Hand
Lisa, and several other people who had hired the same small business owner and had a similar story, reached out to ABC11 about what had happened. In the mean time, the negligent contractor was convicted in Nash County for failing to do work on a different job he was paid for.
We heard Lisa’s story and knew we could help. We believe that we are meant to make a difference in our community and help our neighbors so we got a team together and headed to Goldsboro with our equipment and materials. The Giant Development crew was able to provide everything free of charge and got the work done in just one day!
Now, Arian can walk across the driveway safely, without danger of falling, and he can even ride his bike! We were glad to meet this wonderful family and are happy we could lend our services to make a difference!
