LYNN (CBS) — Nearly 100 women in Lynn got special thank you baskets from a community group this Mother’s Day. The gifts included essentials in the age of coronavirus: hand sanitizer, gloves, wipes, and other products.
“A lot of people can’t — they have daughters, sons — they can’t come here because of the virus, so for today, I’m everybody’s son. Everybody is my mother,” said event organizer Simmie Anderson.
The group Love Your Next Door Neighbors is based in Lynn. They collected donations from several businesses and individuals in the city.
Volunteers then passed out the baskets at a housing complex to spread some positivity.
