Sandy Volunteer Wins Big
38 year old John Turner runs a water removal business in Illinois. After Super Storm Sandy he traveled to New Jersey to help. John and his staff cleaned up flooded homes, including some for free for homeowners who had lost everything. While he was in New Jersey, John Turner bought a scratch off lottery ticket. John won…..$100,000. The jackpot, after taxes, comes to about $70,000, which Turner hopes to invest in his business, give to his church and donate to a family in need.Turner, who was born in New Jersey, said his thoughts are still with those struggling after Sandy. "It’s really, really sad. So we hope they get back to normal as quickly as possible,” Turner said he will be back in the Tri-State Area next week to help in the recovery effort.
