With much of the country under snow and ice, sales of four-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles should be on the uptick. Some Jeep drivers in Indiana have been using their wheels to help get some essential employees to their jobs in the nasty winter weather.
WDRB-TV reports that the Southern Indiana Jeep Members group volunteered to give health care workers rides to and from work at the hospital. They plan to continue to drive employees of Baptist Health Floyd hospital in New Albany, Indiana for as long as needed.
Jeep owner Dana Eberle-Peay, who picked up several health care workers, says, “If we have the means to help people, we might as well use it.” The nurses and staff at the hospital were beyond grateful for the service. “If it wasn’t for them, there would be a whole lot of people who wouldn’t be here,” explains Jimmie Townsend, a Baptist Health Floyd employee.
