Homeless Family Receives Donation From CBS13 Viewer

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Diane Williams did not see this coming.

“Oh my god. Thank you,” said Williams.

Williams has not had many moments like this in recent months.

Just last month CBS13 told her story, how she lost her job; then her apartment; how she and her two children, Lamonte and Lashelle, now live in a homeless shelter; how every morning they wake up and Lamonte rides light rail to school and Lashelle rides a bus to her school.

Lamonte and Lashelle are part of a rapidly growing number of teenagers who go to school in the morning but have no place to call home at night.

After we told their story, a CBS13 viewer, who saw it, decided to do something.

They gave their white van to Williams, Lamonte and Lashelle.

“We can’t afford a car payment. I’m floored, I’m floored,” Williams said.

No, there haven’t been many days like these recently for these three. But today was one of those days. And Williams, who is still looking for work, who is still living in a homeless shelter with her two kids, appeared as if she had just won the mega millions lottery.

“Thank you so much, thank you so much. Whoever you are, thank you for thinking of me and my family and you stay blessed. Man, I’m ecstatic, oh my gosh,” said Williams.
