Nick and Angela Madero, owners of Madero Pest Control in Pueblo, Colo., were observing how the COVID-19 pandemic was leaving store shelves empty and decided to do something about it.

“Since we service an area three hours away that has plenty of potato farms, my wife and I thought ‘how can we help?’" recalled Nick Madereo. "So, I called a bunch of potato farms and finally was able to talk him into selling me 2,500 pounds, so we could give away to our community.”

Madero and one his technicians picked up the load and distributed the potatoes. It was, “All hands on deck,” he said. “The community was happy, as potatoes can help families that are having a hard time finding food or they are tight on money because of layoffs. We’re planning to do this again to help. Our way of giving back in a time of need.”
