A UPS driver from Virginia got a very special gift this holiday season.
Hundreds of local residents stood outside their homes and showed their appreciation for their amazing delivery driver Anthony Gaskin as he drove through the parade. The locals held up signs, cheered, clapped, and honked on their cars to show Gaskin how much they value him.
Patty Friedman who organized the event told WTVR, “Through COVID, Anthony has continued working, delivering packages at our doors, record numbers of them, over 180 times to date.” She continued saying, “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.”
