VIDEO/PHOTOS: Ann Mulkey's son Louis was one of the Charleston 9 firefighters. When Powell Roofing got a call from Mulkey, they decided to team up with some local businesses to give her a free roof.
"Oh my gosh. I've never had anything like this happen to me, to this magnitude. And to do it because of Louis, you know, just made it that much more special," said Ann Mulkey.
In June, Mulkey called Powell roofing for an estimate to get a brand new roof. It was pricey, so she decided to save for the project. "It's very important to get this roof done. I've been waiting to get it done for years and you know I've had patches and patches fixed. But I couldn't really do a full roof," she said.
When Mulkey was ready to pay for the roof, she was told she didn't have to.
