JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Every second Saturday of the month you'll find C. Lynn Thomas, founder of "Fill My Cup Book Mobile Ministries, cruising the streets of Jacksonville.

Since August of 2007 Thomas along with her volunteers delivered books to under served areas throughout Jacksonville and the beaches.

This mother of of two says she couldn't imagine her children not being able to read, not being able to simply take a book home from the library, but Thomas says that's the reality for hundreds of students in Duval County Public Schools.

Since Thomas started her non-profit organization back in 2008, she has given out more than 20,000 books.

But this is a battle Thomas says she can't fight alone but needs people around the First Coast to help.

C. Lynn Thomas is our "Hero Next Door".
