  • Nice day for a drive but...

    It was a nice pleasant day for a country drive and coffee. Often we see deer, coyotes, fox, jack rabbits and tons of ravens.

  • Doug’s the man, when you’re stuck in the snow

    I would like to thank a gentleman named Doug who helped me get out of a not-so-fun situation.

  • Winter may be cold, but people are warm

    The snow was cleared on Portage Avenue, for which I am grateful. But as often happens, mounds of snow were left in front of openings such as driveways, side streets and sidewalks.

  • Mr. McConnell, there when you need him

    My dad and I were snowmobiling out by Elma when my machine ran out of oil. Being in the middle of nowhere, it was looking like quite the predicament.

  • Thanks to the snow clearers

    A special thank-you to the front-end loader operator who cleared the mound of snow and ice from my boulevard one cold evening.

  • Kym and Haleigh rock

    Kudos to Kym and Haleigh of Airdrie, Alta., for mailing back to me my chequebook that I lost at the Winnipeg airport.

  • Such kindness from Bethania staff

    I have worked at Bethania Personal Care Home for 26 years. In the last year, the home had its share of bad press, but I want to share a personal story about good things happening there.

  • So glad those nice young men were there

    My husband and I came out of the Boyd Building after an appointment. His brother drove up to the cutaway to pick us up.

  • Such kindness from Bethania staff

    I have worked at Bethania Personal Care Home for 26 years. In the last year, the home had its share of bad press, but I want to share a personal story about good things happening there.

  • Sherry was an angel

    The thermometer was around -40 when I was leaving a grocery store one evening. I saw my bus pull up to the stop. I ran across the parking lot, sure I would make it, only to see the bus pull away as I neared.

  • Thank you, Wally

    My heartfelt thank you and gratitude to a Kal-Tire service-truck angel who saw the trouble I was in on a very cold day.

  • Gentleman shares nicely

    Many thanks to the elderly gentleman who saw my notice in the Free Press for my lost cane.

  • Many helping hands on snowy night

    We were travelling east on Dugald Road when it became very stormy and we had trouble seeing the street.

  • Caring police officers

    I want to express a big thank you to our police.

  • Warm kindness on brutally cold night

    I am a cashier at Giant Tiger and had the opportunity to witness a random act of kindness.

  • Oxfam gets a lift

    Thank you so much to the person who sent my husband home in a cab from the south YMCA in mid-December.

  • Joan’s kindness, seat warmers appreciated

    A kind woman came to my rescue on an extremely cold Winnipeg January morning. I was driving to work along Waverley Street when all of a sudden, I noticed a foul smell coming from my car. Quickly, that smell turned into black smoke seeping out of the dashboard.

  • We need more Daves

    An unfortunate incident occurred at Unicity and I was unable to drive home. I thought I might take the bus, but found out it only ran hourly.

  • Grateful for purse’s return

    I did my grocery shopping at Sobey’s on Henderson Highway, put my groceries in the trunk of my car, left the cart in front of my car and drove off.

  • Thanks to paramedics, nurses at Vic

    I fell in my apartment in early December and had to be taken to the hospital. The two paramedics who came to my assistance were not only professional but kind and considerate.
