Everyday Heroes: One-woman parade

New Mexico woman spreads joy from a distance

BELEN, N.M. (KYMA, KECY) - A New Mexico woman is doing her part to raise spirits of those confined during the coronavirus outbreak.

68-year-old Gloria Hill, and her 74-year-old husband, Bud, found a way to make quarantine fun.

"I've been bored and I figure that other people were getting stir crazy and I figured it was time to do something to lighten up we can't get together physically but we can connect emotionally." said Gloria.

The couple loaded up their pickup and staged a one-woman parade through their 55+ community.

Neighbors waved and cheered...from a safe distance, of course.

"Stay healthy stay away from other people." "Hi there are you having fun? Stay safe!!"
