JR Hudson Plumbing Steps in to Help a Detroit Woman in Need

Updated: May 2, 2023

Life can take unexpected turns, and sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we need a helping hand. That was the case for Annie Bankston, a long-time resident of Detroit's east side, who has been dealing with a leaky roof and flooding in her home for about a month. But thanks to the generosity and kindness of JR Hudson Plumbing, Annie's situation took a positive turn.

Annie's troubles began when her husband Jesse passed away in 2021. Suddenly, she found herself facing financial difficulties and struggling to maintain her home on her own. The recent storms in Detroit caused her to lose power, leaving her without hot water and exacerbating her home repairs. With no means to fix the issues and not many people to turn to for help, Annie was feeling overwhelmed and desperate.

That's when JR Hudson Plumbing, a local plumbing company known for their community involvement and commitment to helping those in need, heard about Annie's situation. Without hesitation, they reached out to offer their assistance. JR Hudson Plumbing assessed Annie's home and identified two urgent issues that needed to be addressed: her water heater and her collapsed staircase leading to the basement.

The team at JR Hudson Plumbing wasted no time in taking action. They quickly replaced Annie's faulty water heater, providing her with hot water once again. But they didn't stop there. Understanding the safety hazards posed by the collapsed staircase and the mold forming in the basement, they also took it upon themselves to replace the stairs, ensuring that Annie could safely access her basement once again.

In addition to the urgent issues, JR Hudson Plumbing also helped with another problem in Annie's home. They noticed that her sewer main was clogged, which was causing a backup of sewage in her home. The team snaked out the clog and cleared the main to allow the original sewage backup to exit the home.

Gratitude and Impact

Annie was deeply grateful for the help she received from JR Hudson Plumbing. "All I needed were just some little things, and they took care of it," she said. "I couldn't be more thankful for their generosity and kindness." With their assistance, Annie's home was once again safe and functional, and she could resume her daily activities without the worry of leaks, flooding, and unsafe conditions.

JR Hudson Plumbing's act of kindness not only resolved Annie's immediate issues but also had a positive impact on her overall well-being. It lifted a heavy burden off her shoulders and restored her faith in humanity during a challenging time in her life. Their commitment to giving back to the community and helping those in need is truly commendable and reflects their values as a business that goes beyond providing plumbing services.
