Curt Payne is well-known around the Queen City for always lending a helping hand. He is often seen riding his bike around town, picking up trash.

The Army veteran, known by many as “Major Payne,” woke up on Memorial Day and noticed his helmet, which is always locked up with his bike, on the ground.

“Karma will get you, all right?” he said. “I promise you that karma is going to get you, one way or another.”

In 2014, another bike of Payne’s was stolen. A new one was donated to him by the Manchester Fire Department.

News of the most recent theft spread fast. Payne's old boss called him Wednesday.

“Boss said, ‘Well, this person will give $500, and I’ll give $250,'” Payne said.

Payne’s uncle also made a donation, along with a number of strangers. Two young sisters from Manchester raised money for Payne with a lemonade stand on Wednesday.

“I know that I’m loved,” Payne said. “It's so crazy. It's awesome.”
