Default People helping the Cajun navy

There are a lot of folks helping those who help others. My oldest son and some friends were getting supplies and preparing to head to Tx. They had quite a bit of paper goods loaded in the boat and were filling the tanks in the truck and boat. One lady at the station asked if they were heading to Tx. When they said yes, she asked if they had a pen. She wrote a $100 check and handed it to them to use for supplies. Another man there saw what was going on and gave them all the cash he had on them, about $90, to use to help.
On the way to Tx the trailer axle started to bend and was about to break. It's pretty old. The dropped the trailer and boat at a marina/boat repair facility in Lake Charles. They transferred all the supplies to the truck and headed on. They met a friend from Bridge City that was cooking for everyone in the area that was flooded. He was one of a few houses that didn't flood and one of the few vehicles that stayed dry. They used the money donated to buy food, a lot of it, and off they went to try to deliver what they could. It was a long day for them.
This is not about what they did, but about the people helping them. When they went back to Lake Charles to get the boat and trailer, it had all been repaired, some new U bolts put on, a few minor repairs on the boat, and the man at the marina would not charge them a penny for the work and new axle.
MURICA!
