A father and his twin sons from Lake Stevens, Washington, committed themselves to fill 80 trucks with fire and then donated all of it to people in need.
In the wake of a heavy storm, Shane McDaniel and his twin sons, Henry and Harrison, had a lot of work to do in preparation for the unfriendly weather that was soon approaching.
“I had a lot of wood I had to cut because of storm damage and trees that were taken down. It just kept piling up and piling up. Once it got to be such an amount of wood we decided we could do something better with it.” Shane explained.
Together with his sons, they settled on a solution that would not only clear the wood, but also help a great number of other people who needed assistance.
“The Pacific Northwest is a pretty rugged area, it’s cold and wet. Once I started, I saw the need and my eyes were opened up. So many people were stopping and asking to buy it and we just started giving it away.” Shane revealed to PEOPLE Magazine.
From March of 2018 to October, Shane, Henry and Harrison chopped enough firewood to fill a whopping 80 trucks!
Many people were quite shocked by the family’s generosity. Some were even so moved by the gesture that they volunteered to help distribute the firewood to people unable to come and get it.
“It’s a pretty wonderful thing to see. You can just see this feeling of pride and sharing that I don’t think they had before.
“When you do good things for people, they don’t forget. I love helping people.” Shane said.
Such kindness and compassion makes the world a much better place to live in. Shane, Henry and Harrison, we salute you!
