Hannah Lucas, of Caribou, Maine, runs the Northlane Siberian Huskies and Seppala Siberian Sleddog team. She and a group of sled Huskies have found an amazing way to help residents of their state who are most vulnerable to the coronavirus.
For the past month, Lucas and the group of mushers have been helping out elderly residents in various towns by delivering their groceries so they could stay at home and not risk being exposed to Covid-19.
On average, Lucas and her 12 dogs travel 50 to 75 miles and take between four to six deliveries every single day.
The teams consist of six dogs each, and they’re enjoying being out and about. Whenever they see Lucas walking toward them with the groceries in hand, they wag their tails and get extremely excited to make their next delivery.
Lucas’ genius idea began when she noticed how many elderly customers had been coming into the Circle K convenience store that she works at.
She noticed that they were buying little things like milk or fruit, so she decided to come up with a way to help them out so that they wouldn’t have to go to the stores all the time just for small things.
Not only does Lucas deliver groceries, but she also picks up their prescriptions at Walgreens and other drug stores as well.
All of the recipients have been extremely appreciative and grateful for Lucas and her dogs’ generosity.
If you or anyone you know in the area needs help with groceries or medicine, you can contact Lucas at 757-968-6655 or message “Northlane Siberian Huskies and Seppala Siberian Sled Dogs” on Facebook.
