SAN ANTONIO -

Carol Ann Aguero was among the first to respond when she saw Johnnie and Maria Delgado's plight reported last week on KSAT 12 News.

"Not bothering a single soul, not asking for anything. Just him and his wife, doing what they can to survive," Aguero said.

She said the photos of the Aguero's home before it was demolished by the city in 2005 were reminiscent of her own mother's home until the money was found to rebuild.

"Without my sister's help, my mom wouldn't have been able to get her home before she died last year," Aguero said.

She said now she wants to do her part on behalf of the Agueros, who have no children.

"I appreciate what you did," said Johnnie Delgado upon finally meeting Aguero.

She, along with volunteer Lauren Primm, have set up a Facebook page, "Christmas for Johnnie and Maria."

"We're not asking for money," Aguero said. "We just want to ask for as many licensed and skilled volunteers as possible."

She told the Delgados, "We're going to give you a home for Christmas."

Aguero organized an initial meeting of volunteers at the Delgado's property Monday evening.

Also, caseworkers with the Texas Department of Family & Protective Services are working with the couple, who are in their 60s, with health problems and living on a fixed income.

Maria Delgado said in Spanish, "Thank God that someone has heard us."
