CONWAY (KTHV) -We all do our best to give back to our communities maybe through a charitable donation or volunteering at an event. But, for about the past ten years a retired Conway school teacher, has given back through a bag of popcorn for his neighborhood kids.
THV 11 found out us about this story through a hand-written letter mailed to us recently about 82-year-old Monty McMahan. His son wrote us a two-page letter about a simple act of kindness that sends kids to his father's home once a month for a free after-school treat.
Monty McMahan gears up for a special day in his neighborhood with a little advertising out front.
"Buttery salt for the popcorn. Got to use what I think is the best," said McMahan, as he pours that salt into a cup of kernels.
It's part of the recipe for his popcorn that gets "popping" every year around late August.
"When school starts is when I start," McMahan said.
