It’s no secret that much of society lives paycheck to paycheck. When COVID-19 started to become an issue, many people stocked up on food and supplies preparing for what could be several weeks of home isolation. For those folks who simply don’t have the money that was impossible, especially people who rely on government assistance or have fixed incomes.
“Tom” is living with HIV and his immune system is already compromised, placing him at even greater risk if he goes out of the house right now. He reached out to us, so we jumped in to help.
You’ll notice in my interaction with Tom that we didn’t get too close. That’s because we’re both immuno-compromised. Tom with his HIV and me following my cancer treatment. So for both our safety, we kept a friendly social distance!
Special thanks to our friends at Giant Eagle who made this surprise possible. It’s a small gesture to help one man get through these tough times.
