The Alexander Brothers Receive Help From Church

Over the years, their home began to fall apart and due to physical and mental limitations, the Alexander brothers were not able to upkeep it. They worked throughout their lives by mowing lawns, but money has always been an issue in repairing and replacing.

Sixty-nine-year-old Melray and his 66-year-old brother Junior have lived in the same house on Georgetown Road in Hanover, Virginia since they were born. The home was bought by their parents in the 1930’s.

Home Severely Dilapidated

The home has no bathroom, no heating and cooling system, gaping holes in the roof and the foundation and there is also no running water inside. And a few weeks before they were featured in a NBC 12 News story in September, the ceiling fell on Junior, causing him to have a brain bleed.

Pastor Renee Teague, with the Enon United Methodist Church, began raising money on GoFundMe and through steak dinners to buy the brothers a new home.

“Our goal then was $80,000,” Pastor Teague said. “And we sent out flyers and had steak dinners and we were on the news and we really have raised over $100,000.”
