Norfolk, Va. – Less than two weeks ago, NewsChannel 3 shared the story of a homeless man staying at a Norfolk mission who posted his request online for a family to take him in for Thanksgiving. And this Thanksgiving, Neal Shytles got exactly what he was looking for – a family to spend the day with.

Today — NewsChannel 3 took action to help Neal give back to his community.

After his story went viral, Neal was overwhelmed by how many people nationwide reached out to him.
