On Sunday night, an episode of "Secret Millionaire" was special to some local residents.

The ABC television show focused on some Gary residents who are working hard to help their community.

They held a viewing party at the Adonia Community Services Center to watch their episode air.

Secret millionaire James Malinchak spent six days living on welfare wages in a one-bedroom apartment in a rundown neighborhood.

Malinchak is a motivational speaker and works on the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series.

Malinchak spent time with the people at Urban Faithworks, the Baylor Youth Foundation and Adonia Community Services.

At the end of the show, he gave generous checks and even some much needed supplies to the organizers of each group.
