KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A man’s kindness during Christmas had a lasting impact on one family.
The convenience store at 24th and Brooklyn sells canned foods, soda and candy, but the compassion is free.
“We had nothing under the tree, we didn’t decorate our tree or nothing until that day he blessed us,” said Danielle Wrinkle about the store owner, Howard Bettis.
He opened the store because the neighborhood didn’t have one. Rhonda Robinson works there.
“I told Howard she doesn’t have anything for Christmas, and the kids don’t have anything. And just out of the blue he said ‘we are going to adopt them, we are going to adopt them,’” said Robinson.
