A family of eight forced to live without their belongings are now getting some help from the community.
Last week, Channel 6 News spoke to the Davidson family, who moved across country from California in June. Movers from Green Pacific Van Lines never showed up with all their stuff, even though the family paid more than $2,300 for the move.
Since Channel 6 aired that story, neighbors and people from the community have donated many of the family’s household items. Channel 6 was at the Davidsons' home on Sunday afternoon as they received the donations.
“It’s amazing,” says Dawn Davidson. “The outpour of support from the people in the community has been great.”
Tanya Gifford was one of those who was inspired to give after seeing the story. She works with the Gretna Public School Foundation. “We were able to get a truck to hall stuff over here, scrubs for Dawn’s nursing and I donated a couch and a loveseat."
Davidson has also received new silverware and dishes, two TVs, even a bed. But all the "stuff" can never make up for the irreplaceable items the Davidson family has on that moving truck.
Dawn Davidson says she hopes no one else has to go through what her family has experienced. “They need to be shut down and I wish they would have a little more compassion for others and think about what they are doing. What if that were their family?”
The family says she still hasn't heard anything from Green Pacific Van Lines. The Better Business Bureau gives the company an “F" rating.
