Business owner Tyler Wells and his wife Maggie of Fort Oglethorpe wanted to give back to the community in honor of their daughter Rowan’s first birthday after being born 17 weeks early last year. While Rowan was receiving care at Children’s Hospital of Erlanger, they stayed at the Chattanooga Ronald McDonald House across the street. After Mr. and Mrs. Wells’s 108th stay at the Ronald McDonald House, Rowan was ready to go home with a very relieved set of parents and proud big brother, Cannon.
Fast forward one year later; Rowan is no longer a preemie but a healthy and beautiful one-year-old miracle. Because of this, Mr. and Mrs. Wells wanted to celebrate with the entire community by auctioning off an 8’ saw mark oak handmade farmhouse table from WellsWorks Furniture through the business Facebook page. After the month-long auction, WellsWorks ended up donating $2,350 to the Ronald McDonald House which helps cover the cost of one night’s stay for 35 families.
“I can’t imagine what it would be like if we didn’t have the Ronald McDonald House to stay at and the strong support of our family, friends and the rest of the community. It helped us tremendously,” Mr. Wells.
This isn’t the first time the generous WellsWorks owner has benefitted a charity or someone in need. Recently, he has also given away two table sets to two families affected by Hurricane Harvey. To learn more about WellsWorks Furniture, visit wellsworksfurniture.net.
