After giving birth to their second baby a day earlier, Jesse and Maria Hulscher went into panic mode after the furnace broke in their family home in Willmar, Minnesota. With a pending snowstorm on the way and a 2-year-old at home, the couple didn't know how they were going to get it fixed on such short notice.
Desperately needing working heat for their now family of four, Jesse called Magnuson Sheet Metal in hopes they can make a last minute repair on a budget.
“Instantly I panicked,” Jesse said. “I have a two-year-old here, a newborn coming home in a couple days and this was before the big potential snow storm.”
Understanding the family's urgency the company manager, Craig, quickly sent out a repairman. Luckily the furnace was fixed and they had working heat within the hour.
Expecting an invoice, Jesse checked the mailbox and found the envelope with the receipt for the repairs.
Instead of finding an amount owing he found a note that read, "No Charge. Take care of the new baby"
Overcome with joy, Jesse posted his experience on Facebook.
In the comments he discovered that this isn't the first time the business has shown a random act of kindness.
With the hopes of someone paying it forward, this company is setting the right example.
“We didn’t do it for the PR, we just did it to be good people. That’s it. Just to be nice to these people,” Craig said. “That’s what this is about.”
