"I wrote an email and the rest is history," she said. "Never in a million years did I think I would get it."

Safe Step Cares, the company's nationwide philanthropy program, has received "hundreds of requests" for donations, Derek Farley, president of Safe Step's public relations agency, said.

"The tub request we’re used to," he stated in an email. "The toilet paper request took us by surprise for very good reason: we don’t make toilet paper."

Though Safe Step wouldn't provide a value for the donated tubs, the units, which include custom installation, reportedly range between $10,000 and $15,000.

The toilet paper is estimated to cost Safe Step around $1,500 a year, Farley said.

“We’re a very blessed company and it’s a pleasure and a privilege to be able to make these life-changing donations,” Duffer said. “We are thrilled to bring comfort, independence, safety and convenience to Crestview Manor.”

“This is truly a miracle donation,” Crestview Manor director Becky Brice-Nash said. “It was a donation of a lifetime for some very special people, and beyond our wildest dreams.”
