Hopefully you all had a wonderful and happy Valentine’s Day. This year, Easterns Automotive Group and Fox 5 DC decided to come together for their Pay It Forward segment in honor of the special day. Recently in the news there was a missing child in Elkridge, Maryland that was found by a USPS worker along I-95. Keith Rollins was in route to BWI Airport where he picks up mail when he discovered the little boy on the side of the road. Rollins’ close observation potentially saved the little boy’s life. Fox 5 DC cameras followed Allison Seymour down to the USPS in Friendship Heights where she paid Rollins and his co-workers a visit. She gifted him with flowers, chocolate, and a Valentine’s Day dinner for two courtesy of Easterns Automotive Group. It was important for him to know how much he is appreciated by the community. However, the giving didn’t stop there; Seymour also gifted boxes of chocolate to his incredible USPS co-workers and thanked them for their hard work.
The Pay It Forward team went up the road to Wegmans in Lanham, Maryland to surprise Valentine’s Day shoppers with some treats. Mike Thomas of Fox 5 DC was on site to pass out gift cards, flowers, and chocolate to customers as they were leaving the store. Thomas gave Easterns Automotive Group a huge shout-out for providing everything needed for the giveaway. It was truly refreshing to see all of the customers being so cheerful and kind to one another. It’s clear that love was in the air!
