The strength of the human spirit is great, and the willingness to help others is inspirational. It's these characteristics for which our community is known.

It's been a special year of neighbors helping neighbors, strangers helping strangers, and ABC11 Together spotlighting good deeds and community needs.

North Carolina poet Maya Angelou once said, "When you give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed."

It's in that spirit that ABC11 Together highlights ways our community gives back to others.

Watch the videos in the players below for some of the most memorable stories from 2016.
