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."
