A Richmond security guard has one fewer burden to carry now that her utility bill is caught up and paid. This Richmond security guard was struggling to pay her bills, and that's when a stranger stepped in.

Shannon Lewis is a young working mom of two. During the pandemic, she found out she was expecting her second son. Since her job as a Richmond security guard involved working with the public, Shannon felt it would be a risk to her unborn child to potentially expose her baby to Covid. So she quit working until after her baby was born.

This meant she lost out on six months' worth of wages and now she is struggling to pay off bills. When you lose that kind of income, it's a struggle to pay off any bill-especially the utility bill. Shannon was more than four months behind on it.

So when a local news station became aware that Shannon was in need of help, they couldn't wait to step in to help shoulder the burdens this mom was carrying.
