Good Samaritans Easy to Find


Reporter: Sally Delta

Lynchburg, VA - The aftermath of this storm has been so frustrating for so many. But good Samaritans have been boosting the morale of folks throughout our viewing area. Many have stepped up in this time of crisis.

It's really heartwarming. You have neighbors helping neighbors, and some helping people they don't even know.

"She just gave it to me - a whole half-a-gallon," said Eleanor Pillow, thankful for a good Samaritan.

Two days into the outage, Eleanor Pillow was at the CVS on Langhorne when a lady walked up to her with a gift. The woman had heard that Pillow couldn't find any milk so she gave her some.

"I said, 'I'm sorry I don't have any cash to pay you.' But she said, 'That's okay.' And I thanked her so very much," said Pillow.

"Oh listen, I hugged them," said Lyn Honig.

Lyn Honig was at home when a neighbor walked up to her door with bags of ice.

"It was wonderful to have a cool drink of water, yes," said Honig.

And they kept bringing more ice just about every day until she got her power back. Just down the street at Wells Duffy's house, an unexpected guest showed up with ice and a pepperoni pizza.

"I said, 'How much do I owe you?' He wouldn't take a dime," said Wells Duffy, picked up neighbor's trash.

It was his friend Steve Cawthorne who was going door to door giving a van full of ice and pizza away.

"Trash was piled about up to here," said Duffy.

Duffy decided to pay it forward as well. He then went door to door offering to take out his neighbor's trash.

"It was the only thing I could do. I try to be a good neighbor. We all look out for each other," said Duffy.

These are only a fraction of the good deeds that took place this week. 

"I'm so very grateful for the people of this city," said Pillow.

"I'm trying to think how many batches of cookies do I need to make now that my power is on, and carry it to the neighbors," said Honig.
