Times are tough for many of our friends and neighbors.
Channel Three News has been doing something new to help people Pay it Forward.
And the giving continues tonight as we highlight the generosity of people in our community.
It begins with a sign, $500 and our partner Hill Kelly Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep.
This time, we went to a strip mall parking lot in Pace.
Standing with a sign reading, "I'm giving away $500, ask me how" doesn't bring the amount of attention you might expect.
And giving away $500 isn't as easy as you think.
I got some interest and intrigue.
Plenty of smiles and waves.
"Got some waving."
"Maybe I'm doing it wrong.
It took 90 minutes of explaining the rules.
You can't keep it for yourself.
You can't give it to a relative
or anyone who lives with you.
It has to go to a friend or a neighbor that needs a little help.
and they have to be available right now for a very big surprise.
Before Gail Baily told us about her neighbor, Faith Moreno.
"Miss Faith is one, she does a lot of volunteer work. Tell me about Miss Faith."
Faith and her husband adopted four of the couple's six children and have rescued all of the family's dogs.
Her husband is a Gunnery Sergeant in the Marine Corp.
Things have been tough with Faith out of work and her husband's deployments.
Still, Faith finds ways to give back.
She volunteers at Emmanuel Baptist Church, at her children's schools and in her own neighborhood, welcoming new families and even driving her elderly neighbors to doctor appointments.
She and the children even set aside what little they can to give to their church.
We couldn't wait to help Faith and her family and when we told Miles Bentley of Hill-Kelly Dodge Chrysler Jeep her story, he met us with 5 one hundred dollar bills.
On behalf of Hill Kelly Dodge Chrysler Jeep, here is $500 to help you Pay it Forward.
"I thought of you because you have been such a great neighbor and you're always doing things for other people and I know things are tough for you right now. Here's one hundred, two hundred, three hundred, four hundred, five hundred dollars."
Though things are hard, Faith, true to her name doesn't focus on the family's problems, but on prayer.
"Oh my gosh, it's like, that's so amazing. You have no idea how much that will help."
Faith says she's grateful for the $500 but she couldn't keep it all.
She'll donate part of the money to her church's Backpack Ministry and with the rest she'll buy new shoes for her family.
