Thursday afternoon, a Central Ohio woman was using her lunch hour to peruse the Polaris Big Lots!, buying items for a family member in need.

Gina said she has a family member who had been homeless, but had recently been able to rent a home. So she wanted to buy items they'd need to get their kitchen started, like a trash can, and a rug for in front of the sink.

It wasn't hard to determine she was the perfect person to receive a shopping spree e as part of ABC 6/FOX 28's Share the Joy campaign.

As she was checking out, ABC 6/FOX 28's Katie McKee surprised her with a $500 Big Lots! gift card. Tearing up as she said thank you, Gina said the gift card would help their family member get everything else she needed for her new home.

Another surprise winner will be selected next week, plus you can nominate a woman who has made in impact in your community to win a $500 Big Lots gift card and a donation to a local charity in her name.
