EAST LONGMEADOW, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

Many believe that what goes around comes around and that couldn't be more true in this week's Big Y Surprise Squad.

One couple who gives regularly to their community had some friends nominate them for a good gift for a change. 

With that, the Big Y Surprise Squad headed to Easthampton to surprise Ken and Robin with a few gifts - a new patio table and canopy.

After their first canopy was destroyed in a wind and rain storm, their neighbors - Ed and Sue - knew it could be fixed with a trip from the Surprise Squad.

We also brought a $100 gift card to Walmart to use if they would like to sit outside, get some food, have a cookout, and enjoy their patio furniture.

Ken and Robin are a couple who regularly give to their community, like monthly donations to the Wounded Warrior Project. 

"She's been my angel for the last six years.  If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be where I am today.  I wouldn't be standing. She takes care of me so well.  She sticks to her wedding vows - 'til death do us part, in sickness and health. She's proven it for the past six years.  If you make me cry...I take almost 16 pills a day, she sets them all up," Ken said.

Working two jobs, Robin likes to come home and enjoy time with her husband by watching the birds and animals in the yard - something that was taken away with just a passing storm.
