#GoodNews: Uber driver rallies community to care for 89-year-old vet

Uber driver Lauren was taking 89-year old Ronald home from the hospital when she learned that he is a Veteran and has no surviving immediate family. She walked him inside his house and found it in serious disrepair. She asked if anyone checks up on him, and he said no. Nurses that had been caring for him stopped coming because of the condition of the home. She started cleaning and fixing his home herself, and then posted a plea on Facebook, getting hundreds of responses from people willing to volunteer. They filled 2 dumpsters with trash from the house - there was 10 years’ worth of mail piled up. They tool out old carpet and fixed up the place. They even helped care for his dog.
