Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

This week, we met a Mid-South woman named Delores Christopher. The gas to Christopher's home in South Memphis had been shut off because of a delinquent bill.

Within 24 hours of learning about Christopher's plight, you stepped up, opened your hearts and your wallets, and paid off her bill through Memphis Light, Gas, and Water's Gift of Comfort program.

I have said it before and I will say it again. The most giving people live right here in the Mid-South.

As I think about Delores Christopher, I know there are other Deloreses out there who might need a leg up. If you feel called to give, you, too, can provide assistance through the Gift of Comfort program operated by MLGW.

All they need is the address of the person you seek to help and you can remain anonymous.

I'm all ears. Tell me how others are giving back in the Mid-South.

Email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or go to my A Better Mid-South Facebook page and leave me a message.

Giving back to those in need always makes this A Better Mid-South.
