It’s always nice to hear these stories in the middle of a disaster: the staff at a Mexican bakery chain in Houston, Texas, were stuck at their store for two days because of the flooding. While they were waiting for the eventual rescue that came Monday morning, the four workers at El Bolillo Bakery decided to make as many loaves of bread as possible for their community. The store still had power, so they used more than 4,200 pounds of flour to create hundreds of loaves of bread and sheets of Mexican patries (called pan dulce). After the streets had opened and they were able to leave, they took the loaves to emergency centers across the city.
Impressed? Why not show it by helping them directly? The El Bolillo workers have lost homes, cars and valuables, and the owner has set up a gofundme site for them here: https://www.gofundme.com/el-bolillo-bakery-bakers
Fresh out of lifeguard training, three 11-year-old girls rescue a pair of swimmers in distress.
A trio of 11-year-old friends who had recently finished a summer lifeguarding course had no idea they’d have to put their skills to the test so soon, but they knew exactly how to help. Georgia Springate, Kate Hunter, and Lily Cox were at Crescent Beach in British Columbia, Canada when they noticed two people caught up in a current and sprang into action to help.
Lily helped pull one woman to the pier and the other two girls tried to get the second swimmer - a girl thought to be 13 who was fully clothed - back to safety. The three friends had just taken a junior lifeguarding class so they knew exactly what to do.
"We just reacted; it was kind of like an instinct," Georgia says. "It looked like one had been there for a while and the water was pretty cold, so I don't know if she would have made it on her own."

Houston Pizza Hut delivers pizzas by kayak to people stranded in the flood.
When Pizza Hut manager Shayda Willison realized her restaurant could still make some pies for the folks in her Oak Lake, Texas community who were stranded by the floodwaters, she made it happen. She called her husband and had him bring kayaks to help deliver the pizzas during the flooding.
Together, they brought 120 pizzas to locals who were stuck and in need of food. “The people in the houses didn’t expect us to come,” Willison says. “It was so nice to see their smiles after so much gloom.”
This kind-hearted manager is getting props from the company for thinking out of the box. The national Pizza Hut Twitter account tweeted a thank you to her team for their efforts.
“We are so proud of our team for seeing a need, stepping up and helping the community in a time of devastation,” Pizza Hut franchisee James Bodenstedt says of Willison’s boat deliveries.
