  • Phone returned in pristine condition

    My niece was having a difficult evening after work because her dog bolted out the front door and down the street.

  • Much help for Mom on the quick

    My 86-year-old mother and I had just enjoyed a lovely movie and stopped in the mall for a bite to eat before heading home.

  • Mystery gift really cheered her up

    While I was a patient at St. Boniface Hospital last summer, a very huge basket of fruit and candies was delivered to me.

  • The blessing of encouragement

    It was one of those evenings when we just needed to have fun as a family.

  • Car lashes earn a coffee

    It was a special kind of morning. I go through the Tim Hortons drive-through every morning on my way to take my son to school.

  • Kindness forever appreciated

    On one of those cold nights, I slipped and broke my ankle outside a restaurant. A couple of very nice people, Scott and Teri, came running to help me.

  • A huge merci to my neighbours

    After a long struggle to shovel out my driveway and surrounding areas of my home, I was recently overwhelmed by the acts of kindness from three neighbours.

  • 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.

  • 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.
