Kaitlyn Weaver & Anna Grace McDonald 2017 Revisit

We call them Alabaster’s Angels, two young ladies from a small town in Alabama, both hindered but not defeated by Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Each received a tub through Safe Step Cares and we dropped in on them in 2017 to check on their progress. As you’ll see, both are having better lives and both credit the tub for making a positive difference in their homes.

Adam Roen Revisit 2017

It’s been a long road back. When we first met him, he was getting around very slowly and painfully. Flash forward two years after our donation and he’s running a basketball camp for young kids. He is moving much more fluidly and credits his Safe Step tub for getting him through the tough days and assisting him in his rehabilitation overall. As fun as the delivery was, the checkin visit was even better. To watch him keep up with his kids and others at the camp was priceless. On the revisits, we try to make a gesture relevant to the recipient. In this case, we bought the campers t-shirts, which they had never had, treated them to lunch (another first), and made a $1000 to the camp to offset the bills of this all-volunteer camp. The video tells the rest of the story!

Shirley Perring

The company’s founder Mike Duffer made a promise to his mother, who kept his company alive during early tough times, in that if the company had success, he would give back to the communities in which he does business. He created a national program of giving called Safe Step Cares, which has given away nearly 50 tubs in four years. When Duffer read the letter from Shirley, he decided to do one better. He would donate 2 state-of-the-art hydrotherapeutic tubs due to the number of residents and he would also donate toilet paper for life the facility. And it wasn’t a PR fly-by, as Duffer and his PR agency’s president Derek Farley have made numerous visits to Crestview to meet with the Manor’s facility director Becky Brice Nash and the Manor’s biggest fan, Ms. Perring. Safe Step’s employees recently voted the Crestview Manor give away the most popular donation in the program’s four-year history. Perring’s daughter Ronda decided to see if she could arrange another miracle: a walk-in shower for her mother, who has spent her entire life giving while never asking for something herself. Duffer immediately approved the request and Farley coordinated a scheme that would keep Shirley out of the house for 6 hours while the tub was being installed. “Shirley is the very heartbeat of Safe Step Cares. She is the poster person for the philanthropy and when we heard that she could use an assist herself, giving her a shower was one of the quickest decisions in company history.” Farley met Perring for lunch after a few bogus meetings were created by her company Jackson Hewitt, who was also in the know. Farley and Perring said their goodbyes in the parking lot of Cracker Barrel and then Farley raced to the Perring residence, where Ronda, daughter Sinder and husband Don were patiently waiting. When Perring entered her home, she yelled, “what is Derek’s rental car doing next door and I can still smell his cologne.” Busted, Farley tried to backpedal and say he just wanted to meet her husband and daughters. But it was too late as Farley’s agency video guru John Deaver had the cameras rolling. An installer was spotted and then Farley led her to the bathroom, where Perring broke down in tears upon seeing her new walk-in shower. “This is beyond amazing. Mike Duffer, Stuart (Hall, Safe Step CFO), and Derek are angels on earth. They restore my faith in companies, they restore my faith in humanity.” Farley also visited Crestview Manor, treating the residents to pizza for lunch, which he delivered himself. “I’m just a proud messenger with the greatest PR gig in the world. Mike and Stuart give me the opportunity to play Superman but they are the real superheroes.”

Crestview Manor Revisited

In 2013, Safe Step donated 2 walk-in tubs to an assisted-living facility in Crestview Manor. In doing so we adopted all of its residents and have stayed in touch ever since. The donation became the most popular donation in Safe Step Cares history. We dropped in on them in 2017, buying them lunch, bringing them bathrobes and installing a new walk-in shower. Safe Step LOVES Crestview Manor!
