RICHMOND, Va. – In the latest edition of CBS 6 Gives, Shannon Lilly gave back to a community that often gets overlooked.

Lilly surprised a community of homeless people who live at a tent city in Richmond.

Camp Cathy, located along Oliver Hill Way and next to an overflow shelter, is home to dozens of homeless people.
