Like a lot of folks with family members on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, Henry was worried about his mom. She is a dietitian at a Northern Virginia nursing home that has been hit particularly hard by the virus. And when Henry learned that his mom and the rest of the dining staff of the nursing home were working without protective gear, he went to work. Henry designed a face shield and enlisted his friends with 3D printers to produce enough of them to outfit the entire dining services team!
Henry is scheduled to attend Penn State in the Fall to study Computer Science. It seems like he might have a good head start! Way, to go Henry. You are our (and your mom’s) Hero!
This hero story would not be possible without our Mission Partner, Happy Paws Pet Nanny! We are so appreciative of their on-going support.
