When America faces problems, more often than not Americans come together to resolve them. That’s certainly on display in Woodland, Wash.

While some states are taking drastic measures to close rest areas and prevent truck drivers from stopping to use restrooms or to get federally-mandated rest, the citizens of Woodland came to the aid of truckers in a big way.

They opened the high school to serve the road warriors.

The school is just off Interstate 5, about 25 miles north of Vancouver, Wash. Truckers are allowed to pull off and park in the school’s lot.

Then, volunteers will staff the building so truckers can use showers and grab a hot meal, Clark County Today reported.

There is a Walmart at the same exit along with eight other support businesses, like restaurants, gas stations and parts stores.

It doesn’t take much to be an Impact Christian other than a willingness to help.

Thanks, citizens of Woodland, for stepping up in a crisis to demonstrate what being a Good Samaritan is all about!
