We first told you about Homer Jones Monday night after someone broke into his storage unit on Winchester near Perkins Monday morning. A cut padlock opened the door to his landscaping equipment and shut the door on a business that he’d built from the ground up. From the moment our story aired, the phone calls and emails from generous Southerners started pouring in to our newsroom. That’s right, the Mid-South wanted to step up in a big way and help Homer Jones. “That’s how I take care of my family. I feed three others besides myself,” Jones told WREG’s Jessica Gertler. His honesty and hard work ethic touched the hearts of our viewers. “I am a convicted felon for things I did when I was younger, so it’s hard for me to find a job. Instead of me constantly looking for a job and going without, I created a job for myself.” It’s that determination that prompted action. It started with a phone call from a complete stranger.
