"These are my kids," Peoples said. The parents of the children all acknowledge the deep care he has for each one of the kids. One mom even chimed in by adding, "He’s looking out for everyone. The kids, the parents. He doesn’t miss a beat."

One of the parents found out that Mr. People's car had broken down, and that he also spent the night in the hospital, so they decided they needed to take action. She posted on Facebook about Mr. People's troublesome situation, and the response was unbelievable. Within just two hours, they raised $800 and someone even donated a car.

Mr. People's was presented with a donated SUV and a check for $2500!
