After an article that ran in last week’s Boston Herald about the $650 Jeanette Spencer owed to Planet Self Storage and the risk she faced of losing her stored belongings, reader Ronnie Martin paid her bill in full.
 
Seventy-year-old Spencer had been homeless for more than a year until she recently landed an apartment in a low-income complex for the elderly in Roxbury, Mass. The trouble was she hadn’t paid rent on her self-storage unit for several months, and her goods were slated to go to auction, pursuant to the state’s self-storage lien laws.
 
Martin, a Natick, Mass.-based contractor, paid Spencer’s bill, which allowed her to retrieve her items from storage, including a recliner, kitchen set and family photos.
