A Simple Act of Kindness Goes a Long Way
When Mrs. Harris (name changed for confidentiality) took her sister to an appointment at the VCU Ambulatory Care Center, she made a wrong turn into a delivery garage that she has mistaken for public parking. While trying to maneuver her car out of the tight spot, one of the VCU Medical Center maintenance mechanics, Christopher Hofstede, walked over and informed her that one of her tires was flat. Needless to say, the information took Harris’ situation from bad to worse.
But not for long- Christopher went out of his way to help the woman change her tire, get safely out of the loading garage and make it to the place she needed to be. She said he, “went above and beyond the call of duty and I will be forever grateful. The incident certainly restored my faith in humanity!”
