After noticing that the Thompson family upstairs did not have enough nourishment for their large family, Mrs. Lewis cooked them a hearty meal of delicious homemade food and brought it to their shabby apartment. Mrs. Lewis displayed sincere hospitality and generosity by forfeiting her time and supplies to show unmerited kindness to a family in need. Also, for another example, a young man in high school inhabiting a small apartment with absent father and an alcoholic mother needed a different place to live.
