A kind innkeeper has gone so far in taking care of his neighbors that he has given away $50,000 worth of expenses.
Jaret Hucks is the owner of Midtown Inn and Cottages in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Ever since Hurricane Florence has hit the east coast, he has thrown open the doors of his inn and allowed dozens of evacuees to stay there free of charge.
Till date he has given away 1,000 free nights to the poor and vulnerable families and also allowed their dogs, cats, and turtles, too, regardless of the pet policy.
“Love thy neighbor, right? That’s what you’re supposed to do,” Hucks said. “My mama taught me that a long time ago.”
Hucks has received help from community members as well, as families have offered to help with housekeeping, some have donated diapers, ice, food, and clothes.
For Hucks what matters the most is the love and thank you notes he has received from the little children.
