Kirby Distributor Makes Boy’s Birthday Wish Come True
The Kirby business is more than a vacuum business, it is a people business
mar. 20 janvier 2015
Dylan’s mother, Jodie, posted a comment on The Kirby Company’s Facebook page, asking if the company could arrange for an in-home demonstration for Dylan’s upcoming birthday. Jodie informed the company that her autistic son was “obsessed” with vacuums, especially Kirby vacuums. After speaking with Divisional Supervisor Rob Terwilliger, who was moved by the idea, local distributor Al Archie volunteered to do the demonstration himself. Al’s presence alone would have made Dylan’s fourteenth birthday, but when Al gave Dylan the Kirby Sentria II system he had demonstrated, there was not, as many news stations have picked up, “a dry eye” in the Greene house.
Numerous media outlets have picked up on the story from WVTR CBS6 News which can be read at: http://bit.ly/1BaWu7Z. However, Al never volunteered to do the demonstration because he thought the story may reach the news; Al wanted to spend time with Dylan because he is a distributor who believes in going the extra mile. While the Greene family is eternally grateful to Al, Al is grateful to the Greene family and humbled by the experience, simply stating:
“I started selling Kirby vacuums back in 1989 as a college student and have enjoyed some wonderful experiences through the years. I must say that this demo for Dylan and his family was among the most special.”
The Kirby Company is most appreciative of Al for being such a wonderful ambassador of the brand. The news story touched the hearts of many and has been featured on additional sites including:
