Across the community we’ve seen people showing their support for healthcare workers, who are working under tough conditions during this pandemic.

As nurses work around the clock in the fight against coronavirus, realtor Jeff Glover wants to show his support.

“We want to just do a little part in helping brighten their day and we decided this would be a good way to do it,” Glover said.

On Sunday morning Glover got in his van and the hit road. His destination? 25 different hospitals across the state.

“We are delivering nearly 5,000 sandwiches to hospitals across Michigan,” Glover added.

We caught up with Glover as he loaded hundreds of Jimmy Johns subs to take to hospitals in Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.

“The reason we started Glover’s Heroes is for people who don’t get enough recognition in the community, police officers, firefighters, EMT, first responders, nurses, teachers,” Glover said about his nonprofit organization.

“We normally do a program every summer where we give back to those groups, and we decided to fast forward it and do it in the spring and specifically for our nurses given everything they’ve been giving to our communities,” He added.

It’s not just about lunch, Glover is also spreading word about his nonprofit organization.

One he hopes can help some local nurses with stuff outside the hospital.

“They can apply for home repairs, improvements, things that need to be done around their house that they’ve been putting off, maybe they are not in a position financially or physically to do it giving the time they are putting for everybody right now,” Glover explained.

One less thing they'd have to worry about.

“We know they’re giving a lot right now,” he added.
