CEDARTOWN, GA (CNN) – The staff at a Home Depot in Cedartown, Georgia went the extra mile for a 2-year-old boy.

Logan Moore has hypotonia, a syndrome that impacts muscle tone and makes stability and walking a struggle.

Moore’s physical trainer recommended a gate trainer to help him walk, but his parents believed insurance wouldn’t pay for it.

So, instead, they went to Home Depot to make one and pick up the parts.

What happened next stunned them. A manager and other employees at the store made them leave the store to buy ice cream.

When the Moore family returned to the store a short time later, they found the employees had built the boy a walker.

The walker was personalized with Moore’s name and the store didn’t charge the family for parts or labor.
