FOX59 is teaming up with Viking Lamb and celebrating an effort to “Pay It Forward” in our community.

All week long, we’re surprising Hoosiers with random acts of kindness — like buying their gas! Take a look at some of the surprises from Monday morning:

We’re also highlighting local businesses that go the extra mile to help others, like Cunningham Restaurant Group. You may know the name from some of the restaurants they own like Mesh, Bru Burger or their new restaurant called Vida. But what you might not know — employees from each restaurant pick out a ways to give back through donations.

The Cunningham Restaurant Group corporate office dedicates their time to Meals on Wheels, an organization that delivers medically tailored meals to people who may have trouble getting out of the house, like senior citizens. Volunteers from the Cunninham office go out in pairs to deliver meals and visit with people.

“We focus on what we can do to give back to our communities, because they are the people who support us,” said Mike Cunningham, President and CEO of Cunningham Restaurant Group.

We’re calling this our “Pay It Forward” week, but we want to spark a chain reaction of good! Let us know how you’re paying it forward on social media using #FOX59PIF.
