Coronavirus: Postal worker gives Dunkin’ Donuts gift cards to 2020 graduates along his route

A postal worker in New Hampshire is handing out Dunkin’ Donuts gift cards to 2020 graduates along his route.

When Joshua Crowell noticed signs informing passers by that a “2020 graduate lives here,” he wanted to do something to help students mark the accomplishment after traditional celebrations were scratched because of the coronavirus, NBC News reported.

“These high school students that have gone through their 12 years of school, they deserve a graduation, but unfortunately, they can’t have one right now,” he told the Concord Monitor. “I just thought, ‘What’s something I could do to give them recognition?’ ”

Crowell said students who received a card have written him thank you notes in return. He has given out about 25 of the cards, NBC News reported.

“I always keep extras in my lunchbox," he told NBC News. "If I have to be on a different route, if I see a sign, I throw a stamp on it and put it in the box and go about my route.”
