A crumb from Alabama

A man in Alabama who started a movement to mow lawns free of charge for the elderly is now also delivering meals and groceries to those who can't get out. Rodney Smith Jr., of Huntsville, spends his days going from one clients home to another to mow lawns that are beginning to sprout. But now, in addition to mowing free for single mothers, the disabled, veterans and the elderly, he's delivering food and supplies as well.

When Smith was a student at Alabama A&M University in 2015, he founded a non-profit organization called Raising Men Lawn Care Service and now has more than 700 volunteers who signed up to live the motto: "Making a difference, one lawn at a time." But now Smith has found a new way to make a difference, by delivering donated supplies such as hand sanitizer, toilet paper and fresh fruit.
