Trash Collectors Are Greeted By Waving Children Every Week - Then Get Sad News

There are a lot of important jobs that serve much-needed functions, even though they might not be the most glamorous of career choices. One of those jobs is collecting the trash. It's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it. Three children would gather at the windows on trash day to show a little appreciation for the hard-working people keeping the neighborhood clean. Then the garbage collectors got some tragic news.

For any public servant working a seemingly thankless job, it's always a treat when kind individuals in the community show a little thankfulness. That's why the garbage collectors in one neighborhood loved going by the Evenson house every Thursday. The three adorable children would always greet the hard workers with smiles and waves.

The trash collectors, Brandon Olsen and Taylor Fritz, enjoyed being greeted by the children. They looked forward to waving back and saying 'hello' to the kids. It's just that kind of friendliness that can put a little button on your day, but then Olsen and Fritz got some very sad news. One of the Evenson kids was very sick.

Olsen and Fritz got a note last November that broke their hearts. The family wrote that their three-year-old baby girl, Rosie, had been diagnosed with stage four kidney cancer. The family wanted to let the garbage collectors know that the Evensons didn't forget them just in case those smiling faces weren't in the window on Thursday morning. It simply meant they went for Rosie's cancer treatments.

Olsen and Fritz got so upset, and they became determined to do a kindness in turn for the family that brightened their Thursdays. The two wanted to help out the family in their time of need, so they took the letter to their boss at Hometown Sanitation. They asked the boss if they could offer the family a benefit that is usually reserved for employees: a year of free trash pick-up.

The boss thought it was a great idea, and the Evensons got a letter. "Please accept our gift of free garbage service for you through the end of 2017," it read. "We know that expenses will add up as you make trips for this needed treatment, and hope that not having this one bill to deal with helps, even if just a little. As parents ourselves, we can only imagine what this is like for you. We want to wish you the best of luck as you fight on and battle through. Best wishes for a successful treatment and recovery. Stay strong, fight hard, stick together."

The Evensons have been in for quite a fight. According to a GoFundMe page, Rosie’s future is unpredictable, the parents are spending most of their time at the hospital, and Rosie’s siblings are usually in the care of family or friends. They have no idea how much the fight for Rosie’s life will eventually cost, and it’s taken a toll on their finances. The kind deed by the trash collection company was a much-appreciated gift.
