When a pizza delivery driver saw that one of her regular customers faced difficult times, she could not ignore his desperate need for help. Her kindness changed the man's life.

A Domino's delivery driver in Minnesota always took extra care with her customers and enjoyed getting to know them. She saw people from different socio-economic backgrounds and was shocked by how one man lived in Anoka County.

When Angela Nguyen saw the state of a customer's home in 2015, she started thinking about how she could help him. The older man lived in a trailer with no running water, heating, or toilet facilities.

HE WAS COLD AND WITHOUT HOPE

Seventy-six-year-old Lee Haase seemed to be doing fine during the summer months, but Nguyen started to worry about him as the weather became colder. On one of her weekly deliveries to him, she found him shivering with no hope for the future.

Haase had lost his son and gave up on life shortly after the tragedy. However, he had someone looking out for him, and she was dressed in a blue Domino's T-shirt.

NOBODY COULD LIVE LIKE THAT

First, Nguyen brought Haase a heater to keep him warm, but she had bigger plans. She said: "There was no way somebody could live like that and be fine. So you just step in."

Her cry to the rest of their community was simple—she stated: "We gotta do something!" Nguyen knew the community would rally together to help, so she started a GoFundMe page for Haase, and donations started coming in quickly.

CHANGED HIS LIFE FOREVER

The page raised over $30,000 for Haase and offered him the best gift just in time for Christmas. They arranged a place for him with heating, plumbing, and a comfy bedroom.

It took one person to notice his need and offer some help to change his life forever. Volunteers helped set up the new home with everything he needed, including toiletries and food supplies.

HIS NEW HOME

Haase was stunned when he saw what community members and the online community had done for him. He walked through his new home with awe in his eyes, and it was a memorable moment for everyone present.

A grateful Haase expressed: "It's hard to explain [how I feel]. Just pretty awesome."

ANOTHER DELIVERY DRIVER HELPS A CUSTOMER

Delivery drivers often get to know their regular customers but regardless of the familiarity, many considerate employees look out for the public when something is amiss.

This happened when Amazon delivery driver Kelsey saw something worrying outside Jessica Huseman's home last year. Via her doorbell camera, Huseman saw an energetic driver who had an important message for her.

WARNING HER CUSTOMER

Kelsey told her customer that her home had no house number, and she stated: "It's unsafe, honestly. What if you needed medical assistance and the paramedics didn't know your town well?"

The simple message could save Huseman from future dangers, and she was thankful to her delivery driver. Like Kelsey, Domino's driver Nguyen went above and beyond what was required of her and changed someone's life for the better.
