ACTS OF KINDNESS: Friends of the Homeless founder recognized

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Even the most heart wrenching experience can be a catalyst for good. When a Richmond woman saw a little boy eating out of a trash can, it both upset and inspired her to start a citywide feeding program.

Three decades later, Richmond Friends of the Homeless has provided over two million meals and attracted thousands of volunteers, including the woman paying it forward today.
