Man Uses His Savings to Fill Up Gas Tanks For Dozens of Nurses Heading to Nearby Hospital

A compassionate Michigan man is being praised for using his savings to buy gas for nurses fighting the novel coronavirus outbreaks.

Last week, Allen Marshall stood on the corner of the Exxon gas station near the Detroit Medical Center holding a sign that read: “Free Gas for Nurses”.

Marshall ended up spending $900 of his own money to fill the tanks of between 50 to 80 vehicles that belonged to medical workers on the hospital’s front lines.

Although Marshall had originally been saving the money to buy himself a knife-sharpening tool, he felt inspired to do something nice for the local hospital staffers after dropping his wife—who is an essential worker—off at her shift with Blue Cross Blue Shield.

“I just love them and I want them to know that,” he told WDIV in the interview below.

After he ran out of money, Marshall continued to stand at the intersection with a new sign that simply read: “Thank You for All You Do!”

However, the story of Marshall’s good deed does not end there; a woman who was identified only as Alana caught word of Marshall’s labor of love and contributed another $200 of her own money to his cause.
