Sources are reporting a theft that just happened at a local gas station.
“Mobil connected to the McDonalds in the 2600 block of Charles st, just had a carton of cigarettes stolen out of the cashiers hand”
Every Tuesday night from 4-7 pm a couple of good Samaritans hand out burgers to the local homeless.
Louie Lee, Darius Barker, Tyshema Mcintosh buy 300 burgers every Tuesday with their own money and hand the burgers out to the local homeless.
They hand out the burgers to people at the McDonalds on E State and Jefferson and also the Rockford Rescue Mission.
Louie said a family member was homeless and understands and all three of them buy the burgers and hand them out, because they want to give back to the community as a whole. All three of them chip in $100 each every week to do this great deed.
Editors Note: I personally want to send a shout out to these 3, for doing an amazing good deed. Keep up the amazing work! ~ Rickie
