RICHMOND, Va. -- Some of you may have had a bad year, but it might not have been as bad as the year Missy Summers experienced.
The server at McLean's lost her brother to a boating accident and had a nephew paralyzed in a moped accident.
On top of that, she took in a friend's two children when they had nowhere else to go.
Upon hearing her story, Rob Cardwell decided to make her his CBS 6 Month of Giving recipient.
The CBS 6 Month of Giving is underway. Every day through December, a CBS 6 team member will surprise someone in the community with a random act of kindness.
Missy said the extra money will help, especially around the holidays.
The CBS 6 Month of Giving is possible due to a partnership with Union Bank and Trust.
