When a woman’s apartment was burglarized, leaving her with nothing, she didn’t expect complete strangers from a neighborhood nearly 25 miles away to come to her rescue.

Thanks to Nextdoor, however, they did.

After she asked for help, her friend, Lisa, who lives in the Charleswood Forest neighborhood in Louisville, posted to her Nextdoor website telling her story.

“She went to go stay with her friends for a couple days, and when she came home her total apartment was empty, like she had moved. I mean, there was nothing,” said Lisa.

Her neighbors didn’t hesitate, Lisa said. “We got a big screen TV, household items, dishes, pots and pans, clothing, and even food.”

She spent days gathering items from her neighbors throughout southeast Louisville.

“She’s all back into her apartment,” Lisa says. “We got her all situated and squared away again.”

As reported by CBS Louisville.
