First, I just want to point out that I have the best mom in the world. I went shopping this past Saturday, and was unable to find certain items I was looking for.

Later in the day, my mom called me to see how things were going. Since news of the COVID-19 outbreak, I have been keeping in contact with my family on a daily basis.

When I told my mom about not being able to find certain items at the grocery store, she was generally concerned. She was able to find the items that I couldn't at grocery stores in Boise, and shipped me a Coronavirus care package. Like I said, my mom is literally the best.

Here's what was inside:

  • 9 rolls of toilet paper
  • 7 cans of soup
  • 5-pack of Kraft mac & cheese
  • 4 packages of instant potatoes
  • 3-pack of bar soap
  • Huge bag of rice
  • Huge bag of black beans
  • Hand sanitizer

If you would like to send someone a Coronavirus care package, this list should help get you started. For the record, I never asked my mom to send this. She is just the type of person that goes above and beyond to help those in need. Her actions are a great example of the compassion and generosity that we should all be practicing in times like these.
