When someone is ill or injured in the Coal Region, residents spring into action.
They may not know the person directly, but it seems their hearts are made of gold and their pockets always open.
Since Rob Marrero's accident, his family has been grateful for help from the community.
Spaghetti dinners, bake sales, a dance, raffles and a bike run are all events that have helped the Marreros cope with expenses associated with Rob's accident.
"There are so many good people, some that I've never met," Rob said.
