LOWELL (CBS) – A store in Lowell is giving away free gasoline Friday to those who are putting themselves at risk to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Harry’s Food Mart on Middlesex Street is offering free gas to everyone working on the front lines in the crisis.
All doctors, nurses, medical workers, as well as police officers, firefighters and EMTs will be able to fill up their tanks, up to $50 worth, for free until 10 p.m.
The Patel family owns the station. They told WBZ-TV this was all inspired by their teenager. Mahi Patel turns 14 Saturday and they said this is all she wanted for her birthday – a way to show her appreciation to those fighting to save lives.
