ARLINGTON (CBS 11 News) - The Arlington Fire Department’s newly established ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ project presented its first recipient, a teen in need of surgery, with a check Saturday evening.

Hannah Farris, a 14-year-old who works hard in school and donates her time at the Arlington Life Shelter, hates to smile.

That’s because Farris has a rare disease in which her body did not allow adult teeth to grow in after her baby teeth fell out.

Farris’ family is trying to raise funds for the teen’s surgery to receive a set of new teeth. However, total cost is nearly $50,000.

So far, CBS 11 is told, the Farris family has raised $6,000.

Farris is the first person the Arlington Fire Department has helped through the ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ project.

On Saturday, Farris and her mother met with firefighters at Station 14 on Ron McAndrew Drive, where she was presented with a check to go towards her surgery.
