Women's home gets help after copper theft

SULPHUR SPRINGS, TX (KLTV) -

One East Texas business has stepped up and agreed to help Chrysalis House so they can open their doors sooner.

"When I read this story I thought we should do something whatever we can to help this organization," said Jennifer Loftis with Loftis Heat and Air Conditioning.

"I was very shocked and overwhelmed that someone would want to help and donate their time to help it was just a great surprise," said Tammy Pearson,

After being targeted for their copper, twice in the last three weeks,Tammy said she didn't know when the women's home would open.

However, after meeting with Jennifer and Scott Loftis she has hope, it could be soon.

"When you walk in these doors and you see such a mess to still be able to say we'll be there to help and we'll give your our time is means more to me and  these women and children more than they'll ever know," said Tammy.

Tammy said up to 8 air conditioning units were destroyed around the home.

"Just the A/C alone is close to $70, 000. That's not including plumbing, electrical and stuff like that," said Scott Loftis, Loftis Heat and Air Conditioning.

Scott said they plan to donate all of the equipment and their time to help replenish what was stolen from the organization.


"It just takes one person to help another you know and this could be a better world," said Jennifer.

Jennifer and Scott said they are changing it, one A/C unit at a time Sulphur Springs Police are asking anyone with information on the vandalism to call them.
