PONTIAC, Mich. (WJBK) - A husband-and-wife team that's served their community for three decades is getting the help they deserve as generous FOX 2 viewers step up to help replace stolen items taken after recent break-ins at their Pontiac nonprofit.
Lawanna and Terrace Turner were touched when they saw this story on FOX 2 last week about Dave and Diane Coleman. Their nonprofit, QTMC, Inc., had been the target of theft twice in less than two weeks.
They began the organization to feed the homeless 31 years ago as a labor of love from the couple married for nearly 50 years.
"Our office manager came into the office and she was talking about the story and she was in tears. I said it's kind of funny you're talking about it because when we saw the story, we're like we have to do something to help him because he helps so many people," Lawanna said
So she and Terrace, owners of Detroit Wall Street Properties in Eastpointe, bought two new generators and called FOX 2.
"Thank you all so much for your hearts, we really appreciate it," Diane said.
"Thank you. I'm glad that God touches people’s hearts like that," Dave said.
The Turners say they feel just as lucky as the Colemans - lucky that they were able to help a couple who is doing so much to help the less fortunate.
"In light of what happened you still know there are good people out there," Lawanna said.
