Friday Positivity - UPS Driver Moved To Tears By Neighborhood "Thank You"

By Good News Network

One UPS worker in Virginia didn’t just receive a cash gift or Christmas card this December as thanks for their hard work through the pandemic.

Hundreds of local residents stood outside their homes and clapped for their favorite delivery driver Anthony Gaskin as he drove slowly by the parade.

Over 100 Midlothian locals honked the horns on their cars; they rang their bicycle bells, they held up homemade signs—they applauded in every way they could. Anthony’s supervisors were even there to give a gift to him.

One resident explained why it was important to her to thank the UPS driver in a big way: “Through COVID, Anthony has continued working, delivering packages at our doors, record numbers of them, over 180 times to date,” Patty Friedman, who organized the event, said to WTVR in an email.

“I wanted to thank him personally for how much he helped me feel welcome when I moved in during a pandemic. It was terribly lonely and he was always the highlight of my day. Mentioning this to a few people and the response I got was all I needed to know I was not alone.”
