Phillips Supply BrandSource of Greenville, S.C., payed it forward big time this spring by donating a new refrigerator, dishwasher and laundry pair to Komron and Beth Saadati. The local couple has devoted themselves to suicide prevention and addiction counseling through blogs and their work with a local ministry, and owner Greg Phillips saw this as a good way to give back.

Phillips partnered with local TV station Fox Carolina on the endeavor, whose on-air “Surprise Squad” series brings assistance to worthy residents. “We heard about your work inspiring people and giving to the community,” Phillips told the unsuspecting Saadatis as their appliances were delivered. “We’re part of the community too, and want to thank you and encourage you too.” The segment aired during a recent Fox Carolina broadcast.
