Pay It Forward – Surprising long-term Prince George’s County volunteer

Easterns and Fox 5 DC are still on their mission to Pay It Forward to deserving people who are committed to working selflessly to help others and better the community.  This week, Prince George’s County resident, Charlene McCall is being highlighted for her efforts.  McCall has been volunteering for the Fuller Center for Housing in Brentwood, Maryland for 23 years.  She spends 8 hours a day volunteering and working to serve others in the community.  The Fuller Center for Housing is a faith driven non-profit organization that works to end poverty housing by promoting partnerships with individuals and community groups to build and rehabilitate homes for people in need.   They are able to help seniors and veterans especially because many are on a fixed income and have limited funds for any possible repairs needed.  McCall’s role has been sorting donations, answering calls, and assisting the thrift store.  For all her time there, she has managed to go above and beyond for nothing in return.  Even when she was offered a salary, she turned it down.  McCall is someone who truly loves and enjoys sharing her time and services with others.  The joy that she is able to bring people is the reason that she’s been able to keep going.

Fox 5 DC and Easterns Automotive Group recently went to the Fuller Center of Housing Thrift Store in Brentwood, MD to personally Pay It Forward to McCall for her amazing work.  Joel Bassam of Easterns Automotive Group surprised her with a check for $1,500 along with a spa day a Cosmedica Natural Day Spa.  What a well deserved treat for her incredible work!  This day was also special because it was Fox 5 DC’s own, Allison Seymour’s birthday.  Bassam gifted her with flowers and cupcakes to show her some birthday love on behalf of the Easterns family.  If you would like to learn more about The Fuller Center for Housing and find ways that you too can get involved to help others, please click here.
