FEEL GOOD FRIDAY: A surprise for a veteran who restores wheelchairs for other veterans
Feel Good Friday is sponsored by Ashley HomeStore in Idaho Falls, which is committed to being your trusted partner and style leader for the home. Ashley HomeStore also seeks to inspire the love of home and enrich others' lives.
Feel Good Friday is a weekly segment where EastIdahoNews.com partners with Wackerli Auto to surprise people in our community with random acts of kindness.
This week we decided to honor Frank Smith. Frank is a Vietnam veteran who heads the Veterans Mobility program. This non-profit organization refurbishes electric wheelchairs.
The mobility program began two years ago when a veteran wanted to donate his electric wheelchair to a fellow veteran. Frank says he was only planning on refurbishing one. Instead, he’s refurbished over 150.
Frank is a true hero and we surprised him at work with a gift certificate to one of his favorite places.
