PACE — A recent act of kindness didn’t go unnoticed by residents at a local, family-owned restaurant.

“Last Tuesday, I witnessed an act of love and charity at The Chicken Coop,” Edward King said.

Ginger Collinsworth owns The Chicken Coop with help from her husband, Eddie. According to Ginger, an elderly woman ran out of gas outside their restaurant one day, and they could see she was upset.

The couple didn’t think twice about helping the woman.

Ginger said Eddie went and filled a gas can for the woman, but that wasn’t all. They gave her money for medication, a free lunch and they are selling her crafts in their store to help her make some money.

“I was dumbfounded..." King said about witnessing this. "We are so fortunate to have caring neighbors like Eddie and Ginger in our presence to inspire us to be better people.”

“I would urge people to support The Chicken Coop so they can continue to minister to others in our community."

The customers were amazed by this deed, but Ginger said she doesn’t believe they did anything special; as a Christian-based business, that’s what they were supposed to do.

“That’s what we were commissioned to do,” Ginger said. “It was the right thing to do.”
