Home Depot employees build 2-year-old boy a walker


CEDARTOWN, Ga.n (CNN) — Employees at a Georgia Home Depot are being praised for helping out a 2-year-old boy who has trouble getting around. 

2-year-old Logan has hypotonia, which impacts his muscle tone and makes walking a problem.

His parents were not sure if insurance would cover a gait walker to help him, so they turned to YouTube, where they found a tutorial on how to make their own walker out of PVC pipe. 

When they went to the Cedartown Home Depot looking for items, employees told them to go out for ice cream and come back in an hour.

When Logan and his family came back, they found employees made the walker themselves and included Logan’s name, all at no cost. 

Logan’s mom says she could not believe they were willing to do that for her son.
