Caught Being Kind: FedEx Driver Captured On Camera Shoveling Snowy Stoop

A Michigan FedEx driver recently delivered a package to a house with a snow-covered stoop. And instead of just stomping through it and then leaving, he picked up a nearby shovel and started clearing the snow away. Now, his good deed has gone viral, reminding folks how important it is to help your neighbors.

The snow-buried house belongs to Jodi LaFreniere, a kindergarten who had been away from her home when the delivery man came by. Since she has a doorbell security camera, she received a text on her cell phone letting her know someone was approaching the house

When she looked at the video footage, she saw FedEx employee Melvin J. Marlett walk to the door to deliver the package. Then, she was surprised to see Marlett begin to clear the snow from the stoop.

“Although we see many acts of kindness in the Upper Peninsula, it was still surprising to see that he went the extra step,” LaFreniere told CNN. “I shared it with my coworkers immediately because I couldn’t believe it. It made my day.”

Marlett has reportedly been working for FedEx for 23 years—and he insists he was just doing his job.

“I would hope it’s something that anybody would have done,” Marlett said. “If you take care of your customers, they take care of you.”

LaFreniere shared the video on Facebook, where it’s been viewed over 57,000 times.

FedEx took note of Marlett’s good deed after seeing LaFreniere’s post and shared their appreciation.

“FedEx is proud of the many contributions our team members make to the communities we serve every day,” FedEx spokesperson Heather Wilson said. “We commend our courier, Mel Marlett, who went above and beyond to help shovel snow for our customer while making a delivery.”
