JANESVILLE, Wis. - A Call for Action story is inspiring a little humanity.
News 3 first shared Cynthia Eibach’s story in April, when she recounted her story of a botched roofing job that left her with a leaking ceiling and a home that no insurance company would cover.
"If I was to go sell my house right now, it wouldn't pass an inspection for the roof,” Eibach said in April. “I would have to re-do it to sell my house."
Tommy Stanek read her story on Channel3000.com and tried to get in touch with her afterward.
"I tried to do everything I could to get her contact number,” he said. “I didn't really want to call the news, to be honest."
Stanek ultimately called News 3’s Call for Action volunteers. His place of work, A-Team Construction, wanted to fix Cynthia’s roof for free.
News 3 was there when A-Team went out to Eibach’s Janesville home this week.
"Overwhelmed, blessed at the same time,” Eibach said. “That people came together to help me get this fixed."
Stanek didn’t take any of the credit, saying it was simply the right thing to do.
"When I was a child, my father said you shouldn't draw attention to the good things you're doing, that should just be a mainstay,” he said. “That's exactly what she deserved -- was something done right."
