BOZEMAN – You’ve probably heard of Granny’s Donuts because of the donuts, but this business goes beyond those sugary treats.
“When people are very stressed and there is a lot of uncertainty… what builds community is kindness, courtesy and consideration. “
This is what prompted Robert McWilliams to use his business to provide breakfast for Bozeman Health employees.
“It’s not just the healthcare worker,” McWilliams said. “Most of the staff, I also want to appreciate: the people who clean the floors, the people doing the laundry, the people who do the housework. They work just as hard. They are just as stressed.
MTN News just learned what the company is doing, but they’ve been doing it for over a year.
“We started this at the start of the pandemic, so we started in early 2020, and we have been doing it steadily throughout the year,” he said.
And this owner has only one motive behind his actions.
“We are doing it because it has to be done,” McWilliams said. “The time to get up is now when they need it now. It’s been a long time. People are mentally and physically exhausted, so you just have to get up and do the right thing. “
The business was quite busy on Friday morning and customers described donuts in a nutshell.
“How’s your donut?” “
“Uh, good,” exclaimed the Rivadeneyra family.
“I would encourage other companies to do the right thing. Be as considerate as possible, ”added McWilliams.
Granny’s Donuts is just one of the many businesses in the community working to spread positivity during this time.
