Meet July “Do the Right Thing” winner: Lori Williams
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Not everyone gets to work in a field they’re passionate about, but the owners of Mobility at Home on East Brainerd Road know how important is to share the wealth when you are that lucky.
That’s why Kyle and Lori Williams are this month’s “Do the Right Thing” winners.
“That’s amazing. I don’t know what to think about that.” Lori Williams of Mobility at Home was shocked when we gave her the Integrity Automotive prize money. The business owner is able to help hundreds of disabled and elderly Chattanooga area residents stay in their homes, but once a year the East Brainerd Road business also gives back to the community in a big way, most recently helping a young man with cerebral palsy.
Williams explained, “His grandmother had gotten a van that was donated to them, and he could not get into the van, so we provided a ramp that attached to the side of the door so that he could actually roll himself into the van in his wheelchair.”
Before starting Mobility at Home with her husband Kyle, Williams worked for 11 years with Hospice.
Williams said, “I just really saw people want to be in their homes, and want to be where their memories are, so it just kind of grew out of that.”
Sales and Marketing Associate Erica Radcliffe said, “They are just awesome people. Once a year they do a non-profit for somebody who has ALS, cerebal palsy, disabled veteran, just give back to the community the people that deserve it. We’re lucky to have what we have, and there’s people out there that need, that are in need, and they don’t know where to go. They don’t know who to contact, so if we are able to reach out to them, and give them what they need, then it makes everybody’s life better.”
Williams echoed, “We really do try to do things out in the community because they community and the Lord’s been so good to us that we really want to make sure that we give back to everyone else, too.”
Radcliffe beamed, “I love what they do, they’re great people, and I love working with them.”
