Central Valley. M-W student's snack bags replenish energy and spirits of first responders

Twelve-year-old Monroe-Woodbury Middle School student Mason Diltz wanted to do something special for our region’s first responders who are serving the frontline during the coronavirus pandemic.

As he thought about the nurses, mid-level practitioners and doctors who selflessly commit their time, energy and expertise each day, the idea of creating “Mason’s snack bags” came to light.

Mason dedicated several days to compiling snack bags complete with water and healthy snacks. His hope is that these everyday heroes will take a moment and a cleansing breath, hydrate, eat a healthy snack and feel re-energized.

This is Mason’s way of recognizing the efforts of these hard working first responders in the face of so much darkness.
