Southwest Airlines tweets about act of kindness at RDU Airport

This weekend Southwest Airlines sent out a tweet about an act of kindness put together by an employee at RDU Airport.

She put together hundreds of homemade lunches, complete with sandwiches, chips, granola bars, fruit chews--and, best of all, a little note reminding her fellow colleagues to "stay safe and stay strong."

Southwest Airlines wrote that more airport concession stands and local restaurants have been closing down, leaving employees with less options for meals during long shifts.

Being a part of the Southwest Family means going the extra mile to take care of each other, whether that means a friendly smile, an encouraging note, or a tasty PB&J," wrote Southwest Airlines.

In times of struggle, this crew member's act of kindness reminds us how important it is to have each other's backs.
