Salina Man Surprises Sisters With House

Todd PittengerFebruary 20, 2020

A video of a Salina man’s act of kindness to his sisters is again warming hearts. The video, which was actually shot five years ago, is of a Salina man who was raising his three young sisters following the death of their mother. He unveiled a surprise for them, a place to call home.

Alfredo De Leon was able to work multiple jobs to come up with enough money to buy a home so the family can stay together and the girls can stay at the school they love with a teacher they love.

De Leon posted the reveal of the home to the girls online.

In the posting De Leon said “always be grateful for the things you have, and not bitter for the things you don’t.” He said his sisters have never had their own room, or their own bedroom furniture.

After the siblings mother passed away, De Leon accepted the responsibility of taking care of the three girls.

De Leon said working two jobs, going to college, and raising three girls was not the easiest schedule. He manages to somehow balance it all out, and said “there is nothing I wouldn’t do to make my sisters happy.”

As a special touch for each of the girls, De Leon had a framed photo of their mother in each of their rooms when they were unveiled.
