ROBINSON, TX — Panic-buying has left many of our Texas grocery store workers exhausted, and one student in Robinson recognized their hardwork during this unprecedented time.

Heather Guenat said that as she was talking about how overwhelming the last two weeks have been while waiting on her Subway order for her family. They were speaking specifically on how so many people have had their lives flipped upside down due to the virus.

During this conversation, her son 10-year-old son Grady asked if they could buy dinner for the local Brookshire's employees. She said she immediately said yes.

They also bought the girl working at Subway a Starbucks drink.

She said the joy it brought them was worth way more than the few dollars it cost her.

"With that, I challenge each of you to this: brighten someone’s day. Use the hashtag #KindnessinCrisis to show how you made someone’s day just a little bit brighter!" Guenat said.
