White Plains, N.Y. (WETM) -It would be easy for most teenagers to get caught up catching up on their favorite shows on Netflix, or sleep during quarantine, but this group of teens decided to be a helping hand to frontline workers.

“Sometimes the meals that we deliver to the hospitals are the only meal that they get for the day. A lot of the times they’re working up to 10 or 11 o’clock at night. The food that we give them might be the only meal they have for the day because they don’t have any time for breaks. Us knowing that we’re making an impact feels good,” said Founder of Friends4Frontlines, Shane Daughtry.

” I hope we’re showing other teenagers, or anybody, that you can make a difference. It doesn’t matter who you are, how old you are, or how much money you have anyone. I’m thankful to all the people who have donated so far,” said Founder of Friends4Frontlines John Prince.

They call themselves ‘Friends4Frontlines’ and not only do they deliver food to frontline workers, but they’re also supporting small businesses that are suffering from a lack of revenues during the pandemic.

There is a GoFundMe page set up by Friends4Frontlines. The funds will be used by the restaurants to pay for food to be delivered to the hospitals.

Healthcare workers have also left a tremendous amount of good reviews behind, showing their appreciation for the good deeds.
