TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Medical supplies and food are becoming harder to find for some families and businesses amid the coronavirus outbreak.
One man and his team are stepping in to help them out.
WTVA is recognizing individuals who are going above and beyond to help others as part of a special called "Hometown Heroes."
This week’s Hero is Robert Bingham. He is the disaster response director of the Mississippi District Assemblies of God. A WTVA viewer nominated him.
“I don’t consider myself a hero at all,” he said.
After delivering thousands of supplies to as far south as Louisiana, many others are saying that a hero is exactly what Bingham is.
During this pandemic, his team has delivered close to 3,000 masks to hospitals and doctors' offices. They are also providing food to people in need.
WTVA spoke with him; view his story in the video above.
