A local woman has expressed her gratitude for a group of delivery men who kindly went out of their way and donated to her organisation.
The sweet post
Taking to popular Facebook forum #ImStaying, which aims to share touching stories about locals doing good for one another, the woman shared that the men usually stop by at the soup kitchen during their tea breaks.
However, this particular day the men decided they wanted to give back. They came bearing gifts in the form of loaves of bread, meant to feed all the hungry people who rely on the charity.
The woman was certainly touched and shared this lovely message:
"The courier guy drivers pass by our area to collect teas. They saw our work and brought us bread today. Wooooooow. We will have more soup this Friday. Yipeeeee. Its unbelievable. We are sooo grateful. To God be the glory," she wrote.

In some more news about generosity in the community, Briefly News previously reported that the Singletons have gone through difficult times in the recent past after losing two family members to cancer.
It was therefore another blow when it dawned on them that they were set to be evicted from their house on Fisher Street in Warren.
Having rented the house they live in for 13 years, they were heartbroken to learn that the landlord intended to sell it.
Home is where the heart is
That would have forced them move out this summer, ejecting the family from a neighbourhood the children have called home since they were young, Fox reports.
"There are so many memories here," revealed one of the children.
Among the memories embedded in the house are those of their brother KJ, who passed on from leukaemia in 2018.
"I don't want to leave because I feel like his spirit lives here, and I don't want to be separated from it," reiterated Lassandra.
The landlord agreed to sell them the house, but then the Singletons did not have enough money for a down-payment.
They have a lot to thank the neighbours for, who not only stood by them during the loss of family members but have also joined hands to ensure they are not evicted from their house.
They set up a campaign to raise money for the family while another neighbour donated funds from her business to help them put a down-payment on the house.
"They help everybody, and they are so kind to everyone that I just love them so much," said a neighbour.
So far, the campaign has raised $5,000 with the target set at $50,000 by July.
