Help others and you will be blessed. That's the message a Montgomery man is teaching his family.  He learned it growing up and he feels it's worth passing on.  We learned of his good deeds through a relative who thought he deserved a little Cash for his Kindness.

Latoya Williams wrote to us about her husband's grandfather.  Wilbert Williams or PaPa as he's known to others but to her,  he's more than just an in-law.   "I thought he deserved this award because he's always helping people whether it's family or church members or people he doesn't even know."

She told us about the family of four he picked up off the streets.   He brought them home for dinner and  helped them get their clothes washed.   She also told us about the little boy he helps take care of since his mother passed away.   "Normal people just don't do this it's something about his heart that makes him do this."

we gave Latoya 120 dollars to pass on to Wilbert Williams.   A retired truck driver he now drives a bus for the Montgomery school system.  He told us about his days as a child and what he learned growing up.

"That's just how I was raised, reach down and help someone up and they'll do good too.  That's what it's all about helping one another"

It's a simple message that can go a long way in life.
