Pay it Forward: FOX 5 and Easterns give Ruth's Miracle Home a miracle of their own

Recently, FOX 5's Allison Seymour shared the story of Veronica Alston, founder of Ruth's Miracle Group Home Foundation.

Since 2009, Ruth’s Miracle Group Home Foundation in Lusby, Maryland, has been a transitional residence for women who want a fresh start after drugs, alcohol, incarceration, domestic violence and homelessness.

Veronica, a former addict herself, has been clean for the past seven years. Today, you can find her helping women who have faced hardship rebuild their body and spirit.

Her year-long program at Ruth’s includes morning meditation, chores, volunteering, weekly meetings and parenting and anger management classes. The goal is for every woman who goes through the program to live an independent life.

When we spoke with Veronica last, she told us her group is in need of a van to transport the women to appointments, interviews, classes and meetings. 

She joined us again on Thursday and little did she know, we planned a HUGE surprise for her!

Our Pay it Forward partner, Easterns Automotive Group, was so touched by Veronica's story they decided to give her a brand new van for that would help her foundation.

She was overcome by emotion and gratefulness for the chance to better help others.
