According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, a woman in Iowa played the role of Good Samaritan in the days before Thanksgiving, paying off delinquent water bill balances on 17 local accounts after paying her own bill.

Eleven of the accounts had already had their water shut off, and the six others were set to have their service shut down that day the woman made her donation, according to the Press-Citizen. Each of the accounts had running water for the Thanksgiving holiday, according to the story.
