A West Roxbury man and his family were recently able to make renovations to their home, thanks to a large donation by an anonymous donor, according to WCVB.
West Roxbury resident and Brockton native Barry Wiener and his 19-year-old son Eddie, who care for Andy and Dan, 13-year-old twin boys who are severely disabled and in need of home alternations. Andrew is blind and in a wheelchair with severe brain damage and has cerebral palsy and a seizure disorder. Dan is legally blind with autism and also has a brain injury less severe than Andrew’s. He also has a seizure disorder.
The Irish Social Club of Boston held a special event for the family in early February, and supporters have donated funds through a GoFundMe.com page, which has raised more than $79,000 over the course of five months.
One donor, who has asked to remain anonymous, contributed $30,000 to the family, according to WCVB. As a result of the continued donations, the family was able to make necessary adjustments to the home with contributions of labor and materials from Home Depot.
