After losing his job due to the pandemic, a New Jersey man is mowing lawns for senior citizens and veterans free of cost because he wants to do good amid the pandemic.
Brian Schwartz is a former VP of a digital advertising agency in New York, and was laid off in mid-June due to the COVID-19 crisis. So while he searched for a new job, he is spending his time giving back to his community. “I just want to do good,” Schwartz said. “It feels good, it feels right, following my heart.”
Schwartz launched the website iwanttomowyourlawn.com where people can request his services. He also included a link for gas money donations. He has bills and also a newborn at home, and said he believes in good karma. “It’s been a really tough stretch the last few months for all of us,” he said. “It’s stressful and I just wanted to put some good out there.”
After local news stations picked up Schwartz’ story, he has more and more people calling him for his services, as well as calls offering to help. “I just want to do good,” Schwartz said. “It feels good, it feels right, following my heart.”
Psalm 37:3, “Trust in the Lord and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.”
