Coronavirus: FedEx worker moved by care package left on porch for drivers

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Drivers who normally deliver packages got a nice surprise when an anonymous person left a gift for them. The care package was a kind gesture for couriers who continue to work during the coronavirus pandemic.

Tadashi Andrews, a FedEx delivery driver from Buckeye, Arizona, posted a photo on Instagram of the box that was left on a front porch in Glensdale, KSAZ reported. The box contained rolls of toilet paper, water bottles, cans of soup and bottles of Gatorade, the television station reported.

A note, addressed to FedEx, UPS and Amazon drivers said. “Thank you for being committed to the human race. We are depending on you! Take anything you want! Spread love! Stronger together."

A secondary note, on the left-hand side of the box, advised the drivers about the contents of the box; “We are all sanitized.”

On his Instagram post, Andrews said the gesture was, “So thoughtful. So caring."

“In a time when people are panicking and hoarding everything for no really good reason, these people are willingly giving it away,” Andrews wrote. “We need waaaaay more of this.”

Andrews said he did not take anything from the box because he did not need any of the items.

“That’s how we also need to be,” Andrews wrote.
