Transcript for Maryland mom is on a mission of kindness
with a woman who is no stranger to rolling up her sleeves. Yes, Niki mock has been on a mission of kindness for a long time as we'll see now but the need is especially great in the middle of this pandemic and so are her efforts. Check it out. Step right up. Step right up. When I first moved to Washington, I was immediately aware of how segregated of a city it is, in that most of the African-American population seemed to live in wards seven and eight. It was really at the height of the crack epidemic, and families were really, really suffering. So I would bring everything from clothes, food, depending what a family needed at that point. When Niki showed up with the school supplies and the bikes, it made me happy. She comes and she has so much stuff on the back of this big truck, this big white truck and she said I just want you to get help. And she got each one of them laptops, connection to the internet, and the cameras that go with them. During the pandemic, I wasn't working that much, so I kind of made this a full-time job. I would say the focus now had been books, bikes, refurbished laptops, which became desperately needed during the pandemic, once we realized that schools weren't going to reopen in the fall. Furniture, and a big, big drive for food. Because the longer this pandemic has been going on, the greater, as we all know, the food need has become. When Niki helped us, I was in tears. She had a truck full of items, just for my family, for my children, and I was overjoyed. It is my first time helping. And we'll teach you how to Show me what you got. I go two or three times a week to southeast and I never go with an empty truck. To date, it is a little over 400 bikes, it is a little bit over 200 refurbished laptops, I have completely refurnished six families with full apartments of furniture, moving out of shelters and finally into the world of apartments. I absolutely could not do this without all of the people that donate, you know, their time, some have donated money, and I really believe that people want to be generous, they just have to be asked, and it's amazing how the community has come together. It's been great. We've been able to highlight so many of these stories in the pandemic. People have stepped up. More people stepping up in times of crisis, helping each other. We all need each other, T.J. Yes, we do.
