Kristen’s Month of Giving surprise moves this mom to tears

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- As part of the CBS 6 Month of Giving, Kristen Luehrs surprised drivers with a gift card for their holiday travels and shopping!

She surprised drivers, workers, and shoppers outside Goodwill, Big Lots, Marshalls, and TJ Maxx on West Broad Street in Henrico County.

The daughter of a Month of Giving recipient later reached out to CBS 6 over Facebook.

"[I] just want to say thank y'all so much," Stacey Jean wrote. "My mom is at Big Lots and just received a gift card from you all. I can't tell you how thankful I am for this for her. I hope she gets something for herself. She's been helping me out for Christmas this year."

Every day in December, a CBS 6 team member will surprise someone in the community with a random act of kindness.

The CBS 6 Month of Giving is possible due to a partnership with Union Bank and Trust.
