Transcript for Woman living in car with 2 dogs gets home, thanks to 2 best friends
And finally tonight, from here in Washington, America strong. A stunning act of kindness that began with a simple question, just three words. Here's ABC's Steve osunsami. Reporter: Two best friends in suburban Philadelphia walked up to this small SUV in a superstore parking lot, noticed all this woman's belongings and her two dogs. And they asked her, "Is everything okay?" Are you okay? We want to talk to you. We want to help you. Reporter: 70-year-old Lynn shutzman told them she was fine, but she wasn't. Expensive medical bills had forced her to live out of her car. And the shelters wouldn't take pets. Melissa akacha and Jennifer husband-elsier refused to just walk away and took her story to next door, the social media site for neighbors. "Does anyone know anything about the elderly woman and her two dogs?" They learned she was a retired pharmacist, and that neighbors wanted to help. People immediately started bringing blankets, meals and food for the dogs. And just ten days later, they raised enough money for this, a studio apartment, with the rent paid for the next two years. Oh, my gosh. It was life-altering. One of the most meaningful moments in our lives. Reporter: And tonight, she tells us that everything is truly okay. Steve osunsami, ABC news, Atlanta. We are so happy for Lynn tonight, and grateful for the generosity of strangers. I'm David Muir. I hope to see you right back here tomorrow night. Good night.
