KANSAS CITY, Mo. — First responders are getting a lot of love from a local 6-year-old.

Ali Rabeneck learned to sew so she could deliver face masks to first responders to help them avoid exposure to COVID-19.

She personally delivered a bag of masks to the Gladstone Police Department earlier this week.

Rabeneck included a note that read, "I made these for you because I care you are my heroes."

After the generous donation, the Clay County Sheriff's Office also requested some masks.

Rabeneck sewed 80 more masks to deliver to that staff on Friday.
