A Homeless Man In Virginia Helped Dig Out Stranded Motorists During The Blizzard (Video)
Posted by Steve on January 27 2016
This guy is a perfect example of how you don't have to have anything to be able to give something.

During the blizzard last weekend, most people chose to stay off the roads.  But some simply had to go out and many people ended up getting stuck due to the extreme weather conditions.  This was especially true on the Midlothian Turnpike in Virginia.

One man named Curtis was in the area and helped numerous cars dig out and get on their way.  What most people didn't realize, though, is that Curtis is homeless and lives between two buildings.  Even though Curtis has nothing, he still wanted to help.  And he was extremely humble about it all, saying that people have helped him in the past and he just wanted to return the favor.

 
 

HOMELESS MAN HELPS STRANDED DRIVERSWe saw many good Samaritans today helping stranded drivers on Midlothian Turnpike. But Curtis has a special place in my heart. He's in the first clip wearing the neon hat. We started talking to him where he told me he's actually HOMELESS and was staying between two buildings. When he saw drivers who were stuck, he would come over to help. AND he flagged down the tow truck to help these stranded drivers.He says many people said thank you but had no idea he doesn't have a home. GOD BLESS YOU Curtis.(PS...we gave him some coffee, warm food and some money so he could make his way to the shelter. I told him over and over again to make sure he heads that way before nightfall).*****EDIT******PPS...So many of you have asked to help and I'm touched by your kindness. But unfortunately I didn't exchange information with Curtis. I was distracted by the snowy conditions and just getting him something warm to eat...I didn't get his information. But if I see him again I'll do a follow up. #RVAsnow #GoodSamaritan #positivenewsstory
