Hidden hero at Collins

-A A +A

An ongoing program called Hidden Heroes on WDRB-Channel 41 recognizes everyday individuals who go above-and-beyond to make the community a better place to live. Jessica Collins, a Collins High School student, was September's “Hidden Hero.” Since she was 10 years old, after learning that some of her classmates didn’t have a bed to sleep in at night, she has organized bed donations for children in need. She and her grandmother, Lynn Whittaker, launched the Shelbyville-based A Place to Sleep, which has donated beds, mattresses, and bedding for 251 needy children in Shelby County. Kevin Renfro, owner/lead attorney for show sponsor Becker Law Office, presents Collins with a $500 check for A Place to Sleep.
