NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — With temperatures reaching more than 105 degrees, an 8-year-old Virginia boy wanted to help his friend, and neighborhood mailman beat the heat.
On Thursday afternoon, Carmine McDaniel filled up a cooler with ice, Gatorade and water, just so the mailman could take a break from the heat.
On top of the cooler, McDaniel left a quick note of encouragement:
“Mailman: Water & Gatorade in cooler. Have a good day.”
“I just thought because it was really hot outside and I didn’t want him to maybe pass out or anything, because they are really important so people can pay their bills and stuff like that and I didn’t want him to pass out pretty much,” said McDaniel, according to WVEC.
