Some good news to report concerning the handicapped woman we told you about Wednesday who was being evicted from her home.

After seeing 25 year-old Mallory Greenwaldt's story, someone stopped by her home and gave her a $1,000 check. Plus, she says she's received multiple phone calls from people trying to help her find an apartment.

For the past six years Greenwaldt hasn't been able to walk or work because she was shot while working at a convenience store in Rocky Mount.

This month she received a letter saying she had 30 days before she was being kicked out of her trailer that she was renting on Greenpine road in Farmville, Pitt County.

Pitt and Greene Electric purchased the land and wants to use it, along with the area behind it, for industrial purposes. General manager Mark Suggs says he was not told by the landlord when they bought the land from him that anyone was living there, and that the only trailer on the property was being used as a place for storage.

Now Greenwaldt says through the generosity of others she has found a new place, and she can afford it.

A young disabled woman from the east says she's been struggling to get by, and now she's come across another obstacle...she's being evicted.

Six years ago, Mallory Greenwaldt was shot while she was working at a convenience store in Rocky Mount.

Since that incident she hasn't been able to walk or work, so she's been living off the bare minimum from social security.

The past year she's been renting a trailer on Greenpine Road in Farmville, but this month she got a letter saying Pitt and Greene Electric, the company that owns the land, will be using that land for industrial purposes so she has to leave by the end of July.

General Manager of Pitt and Greene Electric Mark Suggs, says the landlord said no one lived there and the trailer that is on the property was being used for storage.

The landlord was not available for a comment.
