SOUTH KINGSTOWN, RI — When times are tough, heroes emerge. We all know someone who's making a difference right now as we live through unprecedented and changing times.

Here at Patch, we've launched an initiative to help recognize these heroes making a difference in their communities. Together with Ring, we’re working to let all your neighbors know about these outstanding people and their stories.

This submission comes from Roberta Mulholland who nominated Greg Sweet of South Kingstown. Sweet is a dedicated member of the community who has done everything he can to help those around him during the coroanvirus pandemic.

"He is a long-standing member of South Kingstown, well known for his kindness and generosity," Mulholland said. "During the COVID-19 lockdown he has offered an apartment to a front line health care worker so that the medical professional would not have to worry about bringing the virus home to their family ... In a time when people post on social media and/or distribute press releases for any kind thought or act, Greg's selflessness stands out. He'll probably be embarrassed by the submission of his name, it's not his nature to seek attention for helping others."

Thank you for all you do, Greg!
