Pay It Forward: Fox 5 DC and Easterns surprise Salvation Army volunteer

Fox 5 DC and Easterns Automotive Group partnered up again to give back during the holidays. The two have partnered up quite a bit during the last few years to help those in need. They created a segment called “Pay It Forward” that highlights them being generous and helping needing assistance.

In December 2016, a woman by the name of Catherine caught their attention. Catherine works year round as a volunteer for the Prince George’s County Salvation Army. She gives her undivided time and attention to those in need all while recovering from a health scare of her own. About 10 years ago, Catherine suffered a stroke that really set her back. Allison Seymore of Fox 5 was joined by Easterns Automotive Group to give Catherine a surprise.

“I didn’t know my name, I did not read and write. I didn’t know anything,” she explained.

Easterns took it a step further and donated $1,000 to the Prince George’s County Salvation Army to help out with their expenses. Catherine took the time to thank Easterns Autmotive Group and Fox 5 DC for the tremendous help during the holidays. We need more generous people like Catherine and the Salvation Army in this world!

Easterns Automotive Group has partnered with FOX 5 DC to help honor people in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community who go above and beyond the call. If you know someone worthy if being recognized, Click here to nominate them - http://www.fox5dc.com/pay-it-forward
