Actor Denzel Washington has given Rocky Mount a gift of $25,000 to help the needy this winter.
The gift is going to a program that helps utility customers who have trouble paying their bills.
Officials say Washington is friends with Rocky Mount coach Herman Boone, whom Washington played in the 2000 movie "Remember the Titans."
