“The original thought was to put a sign on her mailbox for when she came home that evening, but the boys said, ‘why don’t we include the whole street,’” Mentzer said. “We also want to let each healthcare worker know that we appreciate them and are praying for them.”

The entire neighborhood was happy to get involved.

“We have an amazing neighborhood and are so blessed to be a part of it,” she said.

Bryce has a small film and photography business and Drew often lends a hand with shoots. The two siblings worked together to produce a video of the event.
