What a great guy!

One of the worst parts of taking your car to the garage to have it worked on is that call from the mechanic letting you know how much the work is going to cost you. So one mechanic in Powder Springs, Georgia has found a way to ease that stress: he does the labor for free.

Retired Air Force mechanic David McCoy has been heading his Car Care team for 15 years. And they’ve helped everyone from single mothers to cancer patients get their repairs done for just the cost of parts. And he’ll help anyone who says they need it. “Do you need it?” McCoy asks. “If so, you qualify.”

McCoy feels his free repairs are important in his community, a suburb of metro Atlanta, because they don’t offer much public transportation. So twice a month, he works with 40 volunteers to get the work done. Last year, the Car Care team donated $68,000 worth of work. That makes for a lot of happy customers!

Boy whose mom isn’t around is invited to his school’s mother son dance by his principal

Each year Rockport Elementary School in Arnold, Missouri has a mother son dance. And because his mom isn’t in the picture, nine-year-old Mason Tucker didn’t have any interest in going with his aunt or grandmother, as his dad, Zack suggested.

But the boy’s attitude changed when his principal, Janine Hueter, invited Mason to go to the dance with her. She told him she’d be happy to have him join her and her sons for the evening and Mason was ecstatic.

Zack says the gesture means so much to him and his son and he can’t thank Hueter enough for including Mason. "She is always doing things for the kids and always reaching out,” he explains. “And those things may not mean a lot to some people but to me as a single father her and this school have helped me out tremendously.”
