A guy named Ron Jacobson who is a 75-year-old Vietnam Veteran in Washington State is being honored by kids at a local school for all the work he put in as a volunteer for them over the years. The group of kids refer to him as “Grandpa Ron” and before the shutdown due to the pandemic he had spent 900 volunteer hours working with the kids. Once the shutdown started he continued to mentor the students.
Now the kids even keep in touch with Grandpa Ron as pen pals and sometimes volunteering to check on HIM or to walk his dog if he needs it.
What a great story that spans generations of kindness.
