DETROIT (WJBK) – A 90-year-old Detroit woman was left in the freezing cold. Her house had no heat and no hot water – but now she has help.

Laura McCrory was overjoyed when FOX 2 saw her at her home Friday. Not only is she getting the help she needs, she’s getting back in touch with family.

“I’m so grateful, by the grace of God, the ball is rolling,” she said.

FOX 2 first introduced you to Ms. McCrory earlier this week. A botched repair job on her boiler forced her to warm her home with an oven. Several people clamored for a chance to help her.

The Heat and Warmth Fund is leading the charge – mobilizing partners and vowing themselves to cover the cost of a new boiler and hot water tank.
