SUFFOLK, Va. - A Suffolk businessman is taking action to show his appreciation for those on the front line of the pandemic.

LeOtis Williams, owner of LW's Lawn Service, donated 100 $10 Walmart gift cards to employees at Sentara Obici Hospital.

He presented them to the hospital’s president Wednesday morning.

Williams says without all their hard work over the past few months, there’s no telling what kind of situation we could be in.

"The front line workers, healthcare workers have really been dedicated. They’re our heroes, and I just wanted to reach out and show them how much we appreciate what they’re doing because they’re going above and beyond," said Williams.

Williams is also hoping to hold a food drive for the community soon similar to one he held in March.

He says right now he's unable to buy in bulk from his supplier but plans to have the food drive as soon as he can get enough supplies again.
