Ohio couple helps maintain yards of residents shamed online

September 10, 2017 - 7:49 AM

NILES, Ohio - An Ohio couple has stepped forward to help families shamed online for their unkempt yards.

The Warren Tribune Chronicle reports Adam Jenyk and his wife, Chaelsie Adkins, saw an opportunity to help their neighbours in Niles after viewing hurtful posts on community pages. Volunteers have joined the couple's small-town mission.

Adkins cautions cyber bullies who are unaware of the personal lives of people they try to shame. She says she and her husband have helped a disabled veteran, a stroke victim and a family caring for a special needs child.

Jenyk and Adkins' work has garnered the attention and support of Niles Mayor Tom Scarnecchia. Jenyk says doing something to help makes more sense than complaining.

Niles is nearly 70 miles (113 kilometres) southeast of downtown Cleveland.
