Update: Avondale couple receives donations from across the nation

Posted: Updated:

Chris and Dorothy Rolle's bus stop buffet now looks more like a corner store with toys, coats and clothes.

We first met the couple two weeks ago as they prepared an early morning meal for kids at the bus stop, something they do everyday. Their love and care helped stop the fighting and profanity that once filled the bus stop.

The day after our story aired donations from across city, state and the nation began to pour in.

"We heard from Seattle WA, Texas, South and North Carolina," the Rolle's say.

The Soddy Daisy Fire Department, through the Forgotten Child Fund donated dozens of coats and toys which are now given out to the kids as Christmas gifts.

"It makes us feel like its such a privilege to serve the children, to serve them breakfast," Dorothy says.

The Rolles have received enough monetary donations to open a bank account for their cause. They've even chosen a name for their ministry, Love Expressed Ministries.

"I thank everybody, even the ones that called and said that it was touching. We thank them because its encouraging to us," says Chris. "To hear people say thank you for caring, that was enough to warm both of our hearts."

The Rolles tell Channel 3 they continue to hear from people who want to help. They plan on using their own money in the future to provide a dinner for kids when they return home from school.
