Richard Bienvenue agrees with the many tributes to hospital workers and first responders, but he feels delivery people should get some love too. So he put this cooler and bowl on the front steps of his home in Northwest Washington, D.C.
On the first afternoon, a delivery driver took some water. Another day, the postman took a ginger ale, and later a pair of delivery drivers took a pair of candy bars. He neighbors have responded positively. "I'll leave it out overnight for The Washington Post delivery lady in the morning," says Bienvenue. "She usually comes about 5 a.m. Maybe I can think of a way to leave her a hot coffee, tea or hot chocolate!"
