Man shovels snow every time neighbors need him: "Doing things right is worth it"

Amy Christie

Kindness is a daily choice, and a Delaware dad chooses to gift it to everyone around him. Each time it snows, he goes out with his shovel, ready to help every neighbor who needs him.

He doesn't do it to get any special recognition, but his amazing service to his community hasn't gone unnoticed.

What are the details?

Brian Dignen is a husband and a father who lives in Wilmington, Delaware. He chooses to show kindness often and enjoys helping the people who live around him.

So, every time it snows, which happens very often during the Delaware cold season, Brian takes out his shovel. He clears up his walkway and the driveway and then goes on.

Many neighbors have seen him carry his shovel from one home to the next, doing his part to help the people living in his community. He frees up driveways and walkways covered in snow. He is diligent, determined, hardworking, and offers a bighearted service like no other.

"He doesn't do it for recognition or money. He does it because he is a good human," Holly Dignen, his wife, shared with The Epoch Times.

Does it all stop at shoveling?

No, kindness is a way of life for Brian, and snowy driveways are not the only things he helps people with.

As his wife points out, Brian is a "good-hearted person and prides himself on doing things right if they're worth doing."

And being there for his neighbors is absolutely worth his time and commitment.

Brian is the first to offer help if anyone needs assistance when moving and constantly supports other family members as well.

"I feel [...] honored to be married to a wonderful person. He is who I want our boys to look up to [...]. He embodies love and respect," Holy added.

Brian even helped protect a Walgreen employee while stealing was going on at the store simply because he felt he needed to be there for him.

"My husband and I aren't perfect. However, [...] we always work together to make sure our boys see us as good parents [...] and good humans," Holly said about their daily life, filled with tiny treasures of beautiful gestures.

And their example is undoubtedly paying off as their children grow up and follow in their father's steps.

"They've learned that when you choose to do something for someone else, it isn't so you get recognized; it's because it's right. My older son understands that at this age," Holly concluded.
