Donations from our 6abc viewers have been pouring in to help a Delran waitress buy a wheelchair accessible van for her dad.

DELRAN, N.J. (WPVI) -- This is even more proof that our Action News viewers are among the most generous anywhere.

There's been an outpouring of support for a Delran waitress, after she picked up the tab for two firefighters.

Liz Woodward served the two men on Wednesday morning at the Route 130 Diner.

Paul Hullings, of the Hainesport Fire Department, had just finished a 12 hour shift battling a huge warehouse fire in North Jersey.

His friend Tim Young, of the Mt. Holly Fire Department, wanted to buy him breakfast.

During breakfast, Woodard overheard them talking about the details of Hullins' day.

After their meal, instead of a bill, she handed them a note, thanking them for their courage.

She wrote a sweet note on their bill which read: "Your breakfast is on me today. Thank you all that you do, for serving us and for running into the places everyone runs away from. No matter your role, you are corageous, brave and strong. Thank you for being bold everyday. Fueled by fire and driven by courage - what an example you are. Get some rest!"

Afterwards, the firefighters learned that Woodward is trying to raise money to buy a wheelchair accessible van for her dad.

Word spread like wildfire and more than $14,000 has been donated since our story aired on Thursday.
