Today’s Hero

Soon-to-be 65-year-old Jerry McLard has been living out of a homeless shelter in Winchester, Virginia for eight years, answering phones and doing laundry to make ends meet.

After years of saving he’s finally got more than enough money for an apartment of his own – but he’s giving it all away instead.

“Just giving back what people have given me,” said McLard when asked why he was donating $2,500 to charity.
