While the coronavirus pandemic is causing fear, it is also inspiring beautiful acts of kindness. Associates at Kenmore Mercy Hospital were greeted with uplifting chalk messages on the sidewalk today from a local family.

“I try to spread kindness every day and spin positivity for the kids,” said Hampton Road neighbor Danielle Dabolt, a nursery school teacher and mother of three. “It’s a good way to make happy memories for my children while uplifting others.”

Inspiring Tears of Joy

Screeners at the hospital’s designated associate entrance caught the family demonstrating their appreciation this morning and were brought to tears by their inspiring messages.

Dabolt says she plans to come back with her children to keep these messages prominent even after it rains.
