BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Home Depot donated hundred of dollars worth of equipment to help out Airman Amanda Fisk.

"Each year the Biloxi Home Depot has asked me if there's a veteran in the area that might need some help," said Coordinator, Tom Boceck. 

Fisk was the first person to come to mind after hearing about an unfortunate situation that almost seriously injured her son. After moving into her new home, the railing was missing off of the staircase and Fisk's son fell. 

"It wasn't a big deal until he actually fell down the stairs and I wasn't here, so I was kinda scared," said Fisk.

Coordinator Tom Boceck says it's all about veterans helping each other out.

"It's all about veterans helping veterans. Everyone who's helping today happens to be a veteran as well," said Boceck. 

Among those veterans, members of a local Corvette Club.

"It feels a little weird because I'm so used to doing things on my own, and to have someone come and help me," said Fisk. "I'm not used to it, but I'm grateful."

Fisk and Boceck say they are thankful for the Biloxi Home Depot and all of their donations given to make the project possible.
