Eight local men just returned from Tusaloosa yesterday evening. One was my daughters teacher. These men went out of their way to drive a few hundred miles to help rebuild two homes for complete strangers. At the fire department, the crew has been working on gift baskets for various families in the area. We've sent gift boxes to soldiers again this year. NY Boy posted a thread earlier today about his friend donating six coats for the homeless. I consider each one of those as an outstanding effort to help someone else. And I'm sure that there are many more stories among us of a giving heart. Spook....who is proud of these people.
