WESTERLY, R.I. – A 10-year-old in Westerly, Rhode Island, wanted to do something to thank health care workers as they continue their front line battles against COVID-19.
Christian Stone and Abbey Meeker, the mother of Christian’s best friend, went out with snow brushes in hand to dig out the cars of the staff of Westerly Hospital, WJAR reported.
“Christian wanted to do something good for nurses about a month ago when it stormed, and he said next time it snowed, he wanted to clean cars off for nurses because of COVID. I told him I would come with him,” Meeker told WJAR.
“I was thinking they’ve been helping us a lot through this whole pandemic, and I figured why don’t we help them, you know?” Christian told the television station. “All day, every day the nurses here, they deal with the pandemic like COVID and they want to get home from work, so we thought we would make it a tiny bit easier for them by cleaning off their cars for them.”
Meeker estimates they cleaned out about 80 cars over the shifts on Feb. 1, WJAR reported.
