monoxide poisoning. Since then, she has used her voice, her platform and her influence to educate others about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning and the importance of having a carbon monoxide detector. After learning how many families in her community couldn’t afford a carbon monoxide detector, Sheletta set out to provide carbon monoxide detectors, free of charge.
Although Sheletta is a familiar face at the Cottage Grove Hy-Vee store, it wasn’t until the producers of the talk show “The Doctors” approached the company in February regarding her upcoming appearance – about her mission to help others and provide free carbon monoxide detectors – that Hy-Vee learned of her story. In collaboration with show producers, Hy-Vee decided to surprise the mother of four, including three children with special needs, and give her and her family free groceries for a year.
“Sheletta is a true inspiration and an example of how one person can make a big difference in their community and the world,” said Tina Potthoff, senior vice president of communications at Hy-Vee. “We are humbled by her story. Providing her with groceries is the least we can do so she can continue to pursue her mission while taking care of her family.”
Catch her response as they tell her live on the air about the gift from Hy-Vee and First Alert.
