Right now, the media is filled with reports of a sometimes high, sometimes low increase in the number of people infected with COVID-19.

Many are continuously advised to stay back in their homes to "flatten the curve" of the exponential increase in the transmission of the disease, while health workers continue to work hard to save lives.

It is this bravery and selflessness that motivated the staff of Sauce Pizzeria in Manhattan, New York, to offer support by delivering as many pies as they can to different hospitals in the city.

With New York being one of the most affected cities in the United States right now, that is no easy task to do, but the restaurant workers are willful and determined to keep on encouraging healthcare workers.

They deliver as many as 400 pies every day to 40 hospitals in the five boroughs that make up New York City!

The brain behind the initiative is the owner of the restaurant, Adam Elzer. During an interview with NBC New York, he disclosed that he came up with the idea after hearing the plight of how one of his close friends, a nurse, couldn't even afford to grab lunch because she was too busy.

News of the pizzeria's heartwarming initiative has gone about the country and resulted in many donations. One such was from the restaurant's landlord who donated more than $20,000 to the effort and cancelled its rent bill for three months!

It is this immense support and show of appreciation that continues helping Elzer and his staff push forward.

Cheers to them!
