Poplar Bluff man surprised with new trailer to get around

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

Lee Young uses his motorized wheelchair to get around town, but to get there he has to load it on a trailer.

He said his old trailer that was stolen gave him mobility, so when he got a new one on Tuesday, he was speechless.

Young said it's much nicer than the one he had before. He is also blind so he spent some time feeling the trailer and asking questions.

The person who donated the trailer wants to remain anonymous, but said they saw our report on the news and wanted to help out.

Young said he couldn't be more grateful.

"It is just a God send," Young said. "It is so awesome to know there's people out there like that that would go through everything this man went through to make sure I can do the things I need to do."

The only thing the builder would say is that the trailer was built by volunteers and all the labor was donated by Free Spirit Pentecostal Church in Randles, Missouri.
