Homeless NJ Family Leaving Macon Thursday

The Wingfields, a New Jersey family that had been squatting at a Macon home for about a month, will be back in the Garden State soon after an out-pouring of help from central Georgians. 

"We woke up to people knocking on the door giving, it's like you've been trying for so hard and now it's just pouring in and you're just overwhelmed," says Andrew Wingfield.

Joel Chambliss, the pastor that has been helping the Wingfield family get home, says they were able to gather enough money to buy bus tickets for the family of seven.

They will leave town on Thursday morning. But until then they have left the abandoned property behind and are staying at hotel. 

"Two people came with bags full of these essentials, gallons of water, and socks for her kids and toothpaste," adds Renay Wingfield. "And there was two ladies standing there with food in their hands and breakfast for us."
