Fulton Homes awarded a North Central Phoenix grandmother a free pool fence, which is vital in her being allowed by the state to foster her grandson.

Susan Albright currently is caring for her toddler grandson, with the assistance of her mother, the child’s great-grandmother. The two women currently live in a multigenerational home that has a pool, but no fence. Albright’s willingness to take in her grandchild has taken a toll on her finances, leaving her unable to afford a pool fence, which is a requirement of the state for her to continue to keep the child.

Albright received her free pool fence through the Fence Patrol program; it was installed on May 9.

The Fence Patrol program is conducted in partnership with KMLE 107.9 and Ironman Pool Fence. The public is encouraged to nominate someone they know that needs a pool fence by visiting and clicking on the Fence Patrol icon. Nominations will be accepted through Aug. 15.
