His act of kindness is greatly appreciated among his tenants. Many of them have been out of work for weeks and worried about how they would pay rent. This helps alleviate some of the stress that many of them are facing

“For me, it was more important for people’s health and worrying about who could put food on whose table. I say don’t worry about paying me, worry about your neighbor and worry about your family.”
– Mario Salerno
