Greg, who lives in East Windsor, New Jersey - has delivered newspapers for 25-years and has 800-customers.

Many of his customers are coronavirus quarantined senior citizens. While grocery shopping one day, Greg thought of one, an 88-year-old lady.

(Story continues from "Read More")

"I called her up and said, 'Hi, this is Greg, your newspaper guy. I'm at the store, do you need anything?'" Greg later told The Washington Post.

"She asked me to pick up a couple of things, and then she called me back and said, 'Could you also get some brown eggs and bananas for the Millers across the street?'"

After delivering the groceries, Greg sent a note to his 800 newspaper subscribers.

"My name is Greg Dailey and I deliver your newspaper every morning," the note read.

"I understand during these trying times it is difficult for some to get out of their houses to get everyday necessities.

"I would like to offer my services free of charge to anyone who needs groceries, household products, etc. I will be shopping at ShopRite and [McCaffrey's] and can deliver the goods directly to your front door." He included his telephone number.

While some grocery stores deliver, it can take days or weeks if a customer can get a delivery slot.

Customers must figure out how to order and pay online and when the deliveries are made, there are fees and tips to pay, a financial hardship to many senior citizens.

As a result, Greg became a godsend, and requests poured in. So many, that his wife Cherlyn and their three adult children, and his mother-in-law now help.

Customers simply reimburse Greg or his family for the cost. No fees added.

So, can one family make a difference? Just ask the Dailey family or any of their happy customers.
