Fort Worth

Meet David Finfrock The Volunteer

Over the years, NBC 5 viewers have watched as Chief Meteorologist David Finfrock planted trees at schools, helped beautify neighborhoods or played softball with police officers or wounded warriors for charity.

One of his long-term commitments to community service involves him delivering lunch twice a month!

Finfrock drives around Fort Worth, bringing food to a half dozen seniors. He has volunteered for Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County for nearly 17 years.

Mary Lou Adams looks forward to seeing her favorite TV meteorologists in her living room twice a month.

"He's just a real down to Earth person and we talk about different things," said Adams. "The thing that amazes me is he remembers things about me.  I think that's amazing with as many people as he runs into on a daily basis."

"When people are busy like David Finfrock, it's easy to say 'I don't have time'," said Nedra Cutler, Vice President of Volunteer Services at Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County.

"But we find that volunteers like David that have a busy, busy schedule that make time for our program is very important."

Lunch comes with laughter when Finfrock stops by Richard Pridemore's home. Both attended Texas A&M alumni.

'[We talk about] weather and Aggies and football. We used to all about the girls," said Pridemore. "But he's married and I'm an old man. So we can't talk about ladies anymore!"

Finfrock said he receives something out the deliveries as well.

"Some of these people I have been delivering to for years," Finfrock said. "And we've gotten to be good friends."

"It makes you feel good to be able to help someone who can really use that help."
