Strangers donate to St. Clair Shores senior who can't afford gas

St. Clair Shores ó She couldn't fill up her gas tank. Now strangers are rallying to a senior citizen, fueling a fundraising account to help her out.

The effort started with a gas station attendant and a St. Clair Shores police officer, who learned that a woman who is known only as Delores couldn't afford gasoline on Labor Day.

The woman drove up to a gas station on Martin Road and Little Mack Avenue in a borrowed 2005 Cadillac DeVille and gave the attendant, Seth Kazz, $3 for the gas.

The St. Clair Shores officer was standing behind her, heard the amount of gas she was paying for. He saw that she was using a cane and struggling to get back to her car.

"He went outside and told her to sit in the car as he would pump the gas for her," Kazz said. "After a few minutes of getting to know one another, he realized she was really struggling and didnít have any gas or money left."

The officer returned to Kazz with $20 from his own pocket and filled up her tank. The woman told the officer she was struggling to pay her bills after her husband died.

"It really helped her. She would of most likely ended up running out of gas," Kazz said. "Then we thought: What can we do to help this lady? I was going to put a jar on the counter with her story, but I thought it wouldn't be enough."

Instead, Kazz said, he set up a GoFundMe account.
