With the Coronavirus taking center stage, it's easy to overlook those working hard to protect members of our local community.
This group includes the support staff at schools around Southern Colorado such as Rampart High School.
However, thanks to a tweet from Rams Athletic Director Andy Parks, their dedication to our safety isn't going unnoticed.
My family and I decided to take this a small step further. We ordered lunch to be delivered to our custodians from a local business (2 birds....) and our folks were thrilled for such a small gesture. https://t.co/CZcMPrFrsz pic.twitter.com/gyvQYTCdQB— Rampart Athletics (@WeAreRampartAD) March 18, 2020
This week, Rampart, along with more than 50 high schools across the state, took part in thanking their workers by buying them locally produced lunches.
"Just reminded me in times like this, we don't have to do big things," Parks said. We can do small things together and if everyone takes care of each other, we can get through this together."
The kind gesture continues to pick up steam across Colorado, while reminding all of us that a little kindness can go a long way in brightening someone's day.
"It's great because we have them, our administration that cares for us, we do know they care for us and are taking good care of us," Rampart building supervisor Garry Garrett said.
