BRIGHTON — Steven Melgar, a Home Depot employee, presented his handcrafted wagon to Edward Cordova of Brighton last week at the store in the Prairie Center.

Cordova, who is pictured with his mother Linda Frana, has cerebral palsy. He had approached the store looking to purchase a wagon for his wheelchair. Unable to drive and not wanting to rely on others to drive him to the store, Cordova wanted to the wagon so he could load groceries and other purchases in it.

Melgar approached store managers and received approval to construct a custom-made wagon at no charge for the disabled man. In addition to giving the wagon to Cordova, Steven Melgar also surprised even his bosses by personally purchasing a variety of groceries to go along with the donation at his own expense.
