MEDFORD -- People across Jackson County are reaching out following the story of 75-year-old Richard Murdock.

On Friday multiple developing companies contacted the Murdocks offering pro bono work. Gary Lee Construction visited the property and agreed to help with paving the road and painting the house.

Elite Developers also spoke with the family, saying they can lend a crew for any other work that's needed.

"Planning on sending a couple of my guys up there and doing whatever needs to get done and then just donate the material. I have several guys on the team who are very skilled and very quick so we can go in and do something in a short amount of time," owner Brock Scott said.

People on Facebook offered help over the last 24 hours as well, saying from cleaning up to carrying equipment they want to help in any way they can. If you'd like to help the Murdocks, you can reach Richard at 541-779-0707.
