A Postal Worker Is Leaving Gift Cards For 2020 Grads On His Route
May 18, 2020
A US Postal Service worker is lifting the spirits of graduating high school seniors who are unable to walk across the stage with their classmates due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Josh Crowell, who delivers mail on routes near Concord, New Hampshire, has been delivering hand-written notes with a $5 gift card to homes with graduation signs on their lawns.
So far, Crowell, who delivers mail on routes near Concord, New Hampshire, has handed out at least 25 gift cards.
"$5 isn't much, but it's something so that the kids can get out of the house and go get a doughnut and an iced coffee," Crowell, 39, told CNN.
He's received many thank-you notes from seniors responding to his gift cards.
One of the thank-you cards read: "This year has not been easy for most, but I think being able to make someone's day is important. ... Thank you for being an essential worker, it means a lot."
Crowell is using his personal money to buy the gift cards, he said.
"I'm not very well-off myself, but I look at it as, if I put a smile on somebody's face, then I will do it."
