Tonight we have another story sent in from one of our viewers also from New England about a woman performing a badly needed service, and making a difference in the lives of her grateful customers. Her story tonight from NBC's Amy Robach.

Here we go. Today is another day.

This isn't just any day. This is Joyce Deliyiannis’s day off. But she's back on the job to help those who have lost theirs.

There is a lot of competition out there right now, so there is, I've been told many times they get hundreds of resumes.

It was something Joyce was hearing from a number of her clients.

I say, don't worry about it, when you need your hair done, you come, I do your hair as planned. You don't have to pay me.

Joyce’s cuts usually cost $70. So I decided1 to give my time, so they can save money, so time is money. I give my time, they save money.

And words spread quickly. Joyce's clients are helping2 their unemployed3 friends by handing out these complementary coupons4, so that when they come into the salon5, they don't have to pay. No questions are asked other than when they want their next appointments.

Do you want to do it 10:30 or 11:30?

Can I tell you later in the afternoon?

Yeah.

I might have a job by then.

Minogue Cygo, a software engineer, has been looking for work for 6 weeks now.

You’re laid off, you are just sitting at home, looking for jobs and you know, getting depressed6 or driving yourself crazy, you know, it's just a great way to just get out.

Debbie Barren, an executive assistant, was laid off six months ago.

This is great. I mean I'm so excited with my new hairdo. You know, it really makes you feel good.

And that good feeling has a ripple7 effect.

It's getting bigger, bigger and bigger.

Joyce's day-off tips have gone straight to the local food pantry. And clients have been moved to give money in Joyce's name.

Every donation that comes in is important, whether it's $5 or $500, because we are buying for about 400 people.

Cutting off one expense and inspiring others to pay it forward.

You know, I really really appreciate it.

I appreciate you.

Amy Robach, NBC News, Burlington, Massachusetts
