KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A very spunky 93-year-old has been using her sewing machine to help the community, but when someone recently tried to help her she kept trying to give the money back.

Scott Olinger nominated Alice Vogt for FOX 4's Pay-It-Forward Award. Vogt has lived a full life from working on planes during World War II, to raising children to sewing for veterans and preemies.

"She's been in this neighborhood forever, and she does all the Children's Mercy preemie outfits and does a lot of church activities," Olinger said. "She's good people."

"I'm just an ordinary person," Vogt said shocked when she was presented with the award, which includes $300. She even tried to give the money back.
