We're Proud to Help

(KUTV) An elderly Clearfield woman who was scammed out of more than a thousand dollars for a hideous driveway job is getting an unexpected gift.

A man came to 85-year-old Minnie Jensen's door, conned her into writing two checks for a subpar driveway repair job, and took off with the money.
Clearfield police are now looking for Chuck Baker, 26, from Texas. They say he has committed other crimes against the elderly.
As 2News aired Jensen's story on Wednesday at 10:00, Laura Blackwelder was watching.

"It just blew me away," said Blackwelder, who works as an office manager at Concrete Coatings in Layton. "I was just completely bothered.'

So the next day, Blackwelder shared the story with her co-workers. Now, the company has offered Jensen a generous gift - a driveway repair job done the right way.

"We'll remove all the crap that he put on here, we'll glue all the cracks back together, fix those, and then we'll just put a new surface over the whole driveway," said Brain Anderson, director of operations at Concrete Coatings.

This is a gift worth thousands of dollars.

"Somebody's got to watch out for people like Minnie and watch out for guys that do that kind of stuff," said Anderson. "We're going to right this guy's wrong, at least on this one."

Minnie Jensen is grateful.

"It sure humbles you," she told 2News Friday afternoon. "When I told my friend, she started crying! She said, I can't believe that - you know - that people are so kind."

And the gift from these complete strangers couldn't have come at a more appropriate time for Jensen who will turn 86 on Monday.

"This will be Minnie's birthday present," said Anderson.
