CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A woman who lived in temporary housing for nearly six months while her sister was hospitalized has given $12,000 to the nonprofit that helped her.

The Charlotte Observer reported (https://bit.ly/1LfOrgn) that Debra Harvey had lived in her sports utility vehicle for 19 days before Hospitality House offered her food and shelter at no cost. Harvey stayed there for nearly six months during 2012-2013 while her younger sister was in critical condition at Carolinas Medical Center.

Harvey vowed to repay the kindness when she could. That happened earlier this month when Harvey gave the nonprofit a check for $12,000, which was most of the money she received from settling her late sister’s estate.

Hospitality House Executive Director Carrie Howell says the donation has left her speechless.
