Who will step up when termites tear it down?

84 year old Elizabeth Reid has spent all her life helping others and now she could use just a little help herself. Mrs. Reid lives in Charleston South Carolina in a modest home where she had just finished paying off the mortgage last year. Unfortunately for Mrs. Reid, the termite infestation in her home has been eating away her life’s investment right out from under her feet. Living on social security and with no savings the estimated termite repair is in the tens of thousands if not more and she has no ability to pay. For Mrs. Reid this could be devastating and the news gets worse. The damage is so bad that Mr. Ledford of Ledford Termite & Pest Control Inc. who discovered the massive infestation say’s.” that no decision on treatment has been made until they asses whether or not the home is salvageable.” In either case the lovely Mrs. Reid is facing an uphill battle and she sure could use our help.

Carolyn Murray is the TV Anchorwoman for WCBD Channel 2 in Charleston who broke this story and is seeking individuals to help as well. She is working closely with Mr. Ledford and reaching out to the community via her station. You can contact her at cmurray@wcbd.com and I’m sure she’d be glad to hear from you. In the meantime we here at www,pestcemetery.com have set up a donation site where interested people can give whatever is in their hearts to help as well. 100% of what’s received will be forwarded directly to Mrs. Reid. Please consider helping this fine lady out with a donation of any size by clicking the link below and giving to her cause. I realize that most of us are thousands of miles away from this and there are tough times for more than just Mrs. Reid. Termites however are something we can all relate too and we know just how much extreme damage they can do to an unsuspecting home owner and the grief and financial heartache that comes with it. Mrs. Reid has been clear where she has put her trust in this unfortunate situation and for me, that’s all I needed to hear and I decided to help. I hope you do too.
