Tuscaloosa Woman Surprised with $1,000 Check for Christmas [VIDEO]
Watch as we surprise one deserving West Alabama woman with a $1,000 check from YourWay Furniture in Tuscaloosa! She was chosen out of nearly 100 nominations.
Leading up to this big surprise, we've been on the phone granting other wishes from nominations submitted by our listeners. We call it Heartwarming Holidays, presented by YourWay Furniture.
We offered $350 in gifts to Heather who was diagnosed with breast cancer just a few weeks ago. This brave mom is unable to work during her chemotherapy treatments, as she stays busy taking care of her special needs child.
Then, there is Josh, a local wounded warrior who spent a year serving our country in Afghanistan. In conjunction with Townsquare Cares, we gave this proud vet dealing with PTSD $500 and a pat on the back to say thank you and Merry Christmas.
All told, the 2015 Heartwarming Holidays campaign gave away over $3,000 to the community.
The biggest present of them all was reserved for Tiffany Collins of Tuscaloosa. Here's an incredibly friendly and upbeat single mom with a 6 year old son. Recently, bad luck has really brought her down. The details are delicate, as she hit rock bottom, it moved us to do something, to make a positive impact in her life now for Christmas and to help get 2016 on the right foot with $1,000!
Tiffany was nominated by Liz, a co-worker and friend. I asked Liz to bring Tiffany to YourWay Furniture and pretend you needed help picking out something. This is where we moved in! A few of us from the radio stations of Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa pulled her to the side for the surprise announcement, to offer help with $1,000. It was an emotional moment filled with tears.
Below, watch how it happened.
