|'Random acts of kindness'|
Natia Moore's gas gauge was on empty when she pulled into the Chevron on Mill Street in West Monroe.
Unbeknownst to her, the gas was already paid for by Iberiabank's Kay Clark.
On Wednesday, several motorists were treated to some free gas during the bank's "random acts of kindness day," which was performed throughout the community.
Iberiabank associates arrived at various gasoline stations Wednesday, paid for fuel and asked if motorists didn't mind them pumping their gas.
Clark said everyone she talked to was overjoyed with the free gas. Only one woman turned them down.
"I actually had one lady who declined," Clark said. "She said, 'I'm in a hurry, I don't have time.'"
"That was highly unusual," Clark added.
Iberiabank routinely promotes random acts of kindness events during the year. This time, bank officials figured one of the best ways to help people was at the pumps.
"We're getting a great response," Clark said. "They are so thankful, especially with gas prices like they are now. $10 doesn't go that far, but it helps."
Iberiabank hopes others in the community will be inspired to help other citizens with random acts of kindness on any given day.
Moore almost burst into tears when Clark explained to her that she was getting free gas. She had a few $1 bills clutched in her hand, which she was going to use to buy gas. Her warning light already had come on before she arrived at the station.
"This is so great, and it helps out so much," Moore said. "For someone you don't even know to help you, that shows how much caring there is in this neighborhood. I really appreciate this from the bottom of my heart, and my kids appreciate it from the bottom of their hearts. My gas light was on, but it's off now."
Moore said Clark's "random act of kindness" inspired her to do more to help others in need.
"It's really good to help others," Moore said. "Now that you have blessed me, I hope that I can bless somebody else with the same kindness today."
"I hope that I can do that because this has really lifted me," she added.
