Michelle mentioned to us that her mom was looking for a way to thank those in her local community that are working extra hard during the Coronavirus pandemic. With many of us sending kids back to school, we know that our teachers are playing an extra important role this year. But often overlooked are the school janitors who are working long hours to help disinfect and transform classrooms to meet safety guidelines.
Janitors are essential to keeping things clean and running smoothly on a daily basis, and they definitely deserve our appreciation every day, but especially in times like these! ❤️
I have to share what my mom just made and delivered to the custodians at my husband’s school. Out of those who work at the school, he said it’s the custodians that are SO stressed. They are working ridiculous hours to clean 10 times more than they ever have, plus they’re installing plexiglass, and so much other stuff. She wanted a way to thank them, so she dropped this off at his school for them.
These gifts included a cooler full of drinks and a $50 Texas Roadhouse gift card for the boss, $25 Buffalo Wild Wings gift cards, and candies for the two assistants, as well as $10 McDonald’s gift cards, snacks, tangerines, power bars, and nuts.
I know the teachers are what everyone focuses on, but those custodians are working their butts off at these schools, too!
Thank you, Michelle, for sharing this idea with us! What an incredibly special way to give back to the community and honor those who are working extra hard to keep everyone safe during these times!
