Much of the nation is being hit with frigid cold, but this story is sure to warm your heart.

Tommy Adams, a high school senior near Richmond, Va., is being lauded as a hometown hero for stopping to help an elderly man with a walker shovel his driveway, according to WTVR CBS 6 News.

Adams was driving with his mother when he spotted the older man struggling, asked his mom to stop, and began to help the stranger clear the snow.

“I try to do good for the elderly because one day I may need help, too,” Adams told the station.

Tommy’s mother’s reaction? “I was so proud I started to cry,” she said.

You go, Tommy! Thanks for giving us a reason to smile on this chilly day.
