Local Brothers Help Patients at Calvary Hospital

New Rochelle brothers Sebastian and Lukas wanted to help their grandmother who was a patient at Calvary Hospital in the Bronx. The boys noticed as their grandmother fell asleep, her mouth would open. Being concerned grandsons, they came up with the idea of purchasing a Venus Fly Trap at their local Stop & Shop and thought the plant could protect her from flies as she slept.


The gesture grew into a plan to donate and distribute plants to more patients at Calvary. Stop & Shop located and donated plants that were distributed by the brothers. The boys went from room to room and delivered the plants along with notes in honor of their grandmother.
