Family Creates a Drive-Thru for the Lonely
A Columbus, Ohio family setup a "drive-thru chat," encouraging area residents to pull up theirdriveway so that mom, dad, son, and 6-year-old daughter could chat with them through their living room window.
The mother said nearly 40 people have stopped by within the last week,including police officers, the children's teachers, and neighbors they've never before met. They aren't all drivers. Walkers, cyclists, and a motorcyclist have shown up, too.
A sign directs people to visit between 11am and 3pm, and honk to get the family's attention.
The mom said. ”It doesn't matter what room of the house we're in, whenwe hear that beep, we come running to that window with huge smiles on ourfaces. It’s been such a light during what has felt like such a dark time."
