LANCASTER – Spreading a message of “Helpful after the Holidays” and to raise awareness for local food bank donation needs, the Helpful Honda Guys in Blue have been traveling around Lancaster helping residents in a variety of unexpected ways this month.
“As we recalibrate from the holidays and settle into the New Year, it’s sometimes easy to forget that those less fortunate still need our help, and the importance of staying helpful in our communities like Lancaster,” Honda said in a statement.
Most recently the Helpful Blue Shirts were spotted volunteering at Lancaster Community Shelter and painting Monte Vista Elementary as part of the 6th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.
They have also been surprising residents with small acts of kindness, such as opening doors, carrying groceries, distributing reusable bags for shoppers, keeping residents hydrated with water and picking up litter around town.
Over the next few weeks, the Guys in Blue will be handing out complimentary roses on Valentine’s Day and volunteering at local food banks and blood drives.
They’re encouraging residents to lend a helping hand, as well, to local organizations such as Grace Resource Center.
