It is now more than ever that we need to come together.

 

The events that have transpired over the past few weeks and months have shown us that now, more than ever, we need to come together as human beings. We need to come together and recognize that it is time for positivity, unity, love and kindness.

A world-wide change needs to happen! We recognize that. We see that. But this change from fear, ignorance, and hate to calmness, understanding and love must start with all of us.

That is why we have made it our MISSION to spread KINDNESS. By buying our guests a coffee, a lunch or snack, saying thank you is one of our ways of spreading compassion and understanding in our areas.  It is our hope that these small acts of humanity will continue to spread throughout our valued communities and beyond.

Drastic change needs to happen.

What can you do today to spread a little kindness?

Have a look at a few of our small acts of kindness below:

 

Steve Horner (or Steve-O, as we call him!) is just full of life, he always has a smile on his face and is full of stories. Steve-O unfortunately got some bad news that his mother has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days. She is 84 years old and in a nursing home in Ontario, but he has reported that she is doing good and getting better. Even though his mom is going through this so far away you can tell by his smile that he is happy to be doing his job. He delivers all over BC and Alberta, and was so excited when he got his favorite sub for free.

This is Allan Jenner, around here we call him Jenner. He is a newer owner-operator, that has had a hard time in the last little bit. He frequents our location, and has become like family. Jenner just had to replace the engine in his truck which was costly. He was so thankful for the lunch we supplied him with and the hot shower he had, before leaving for his next delivery.

This is Cory Nelson, he’s been a truck driver for over 35 years. He’s from Prince George and decided to self isolate away from his family in order to keep them safe. He has not held his wife or 2 year old son for 7 weeks now. Last time he saw them was through a screen door at Easter, where he sat on the porch and his family sat on the other side of the door so they could have Easter dinner together. Cory was very surprised and thankful for his lunch today. He also thanked us for working and keeping our bathrooms clean and the food stocked.

We are happy to help bring a smile to so many faces!
