EUGENE, Ore. -- Bethany Howe and her 9-year-old daughter Nola are on a mission to help as many people as they can during this uneasy time.
With school being canceled and work put on hold, they decided to team up with neighbors to do something good. They formed
Tennyson Coronavirus Assistance Response, a group committed to helping those who need it the most.
They printed out letters and put them on all 250 units in the apartment complex so that people know they are not alone. They are offering to pick up groceries, supplies and prescriptions.
In order to avoid physical contact, they said they leave the items on people’s front porches.
“It’s actually been pretty fun helping people," Nola Longueira said.
Nola said being able to potentially save a life is something worth more to her than doing what most children are while being stuck at home.
“That is just who she is and I’m always proud of her and always giving her a peck on the head and saying, 'I love you,' and she knows what that means,” Bethany said.
They said they plan to continue to help out until they're no longer needed.
