TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

A Tifton woman's health challenges have inspired her to help others.

Tronda Westbrook recently opened an outreach center to give back because she's thankful for things people have done for her.

In 2000, she had two heart attacks, and five bypass surgeries.

About a month ago she decided to open Faith Works Kingdom Ministries Outreach Center Inc. She helps supply people with clothing, hygiene products and diapers.

“I've always had a desire to help people. There were times in my life when I didn't have and I was too ashamed to go to other people and ask for their help,” says founder Tronda Westbrook.

You can contract Tronda Westbrook at 229-392-3660 to make a donation or if you know someone in need.

The outreach ministry is located at 2735 U.S. 41 South.
