Here's today's feel-good story:

After a snowstorm halted traffic on I-95 for almost two days, the CEO of Schmidt Baking Company decided to help by having one of the drivers of their truck pass out bread and rolls to the stranded cars.

Some of the stranded cars contained babies, pets, and elderly folks who were not able to eat for a long time.

A couple stuck in the traffic, Casey Holihan and her husband John Noe, spotted a Schmidt Baking Company truck after not eating for 37 hours. They called the customer service line for the company and asked if they could have some of the bread.

“We didn’t think it would actually work, but less then 20 minutes later we got an incredible surprise,” said Casey. “We received a personal call from the owner of the company, Chuck, who contacted the driver.”

“It was an easy decision” Chuck Paterakis, the CEO of Schmidt said. He told his driver to “give away all the bread” adding that he was “very humbled and grateful that we could help.”
