One man's garbage is another man's treasure, as you are well aware.
For the owner of a thrift shop in Red Bank, that is true in numerous ways.
He received $500 from NewsChannel 9 and the McMahan Law Firm as part of the Pay It Forward initiative.
He views people in the same way as the Lord does. Chris Shirley was nominated for Pay it Forward by Reverend Raymond Wrinkle, who compared him to Jesus.
In the 20 years that he has served as pastor, Rev. Raymond Wrinkle has witnessed innumerable individuals enter Falling Water Baptist Tabernacle.
Chris Shirley, in his opinion, comes closest to resembling Christ.
Chris discovers treasure where others see garbage.
He manages the Red Bank Thrift Shop, where customers come first and earnings come second.
He's always involved in the garbage trade. "The garbage guy." He assists those without a place to sleep. To protect them from the weather, he places couches under the awnings, according to Rev. Wrinkle.
Although everything in his shop is marked with a price, customers aren't usually required to pay.
"Anyone who has a house fire is welcome to come here and collect as much clothing as they need. Nothing at all. You can only buy one costume, according to some areas. No, we did away with that. Whatever you require," Shirley added.
Assistance doesn't end at the store.
"A young woman called yesterday to request assistance moving 1.6 miles. She was penniless. Yes, we can accomplish that,” Shirley said.
"We do what others won't and we have what others don't," he lives by, according to Shirley.
