WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — We first told you about Minnie Galloway and her positive work in our community last December. Now, others are getting wind of her amazing work as she has been nominated as America’s Favorite Crossing Guard by SafeKids.org. She needs your help to win!
Minnie is a crossing guard in front of Trask Middle School in New Hanover County. It’s a job she’s been doing for 19 years.
She says her duty to keep children safe while her self-imposed duty to try and keep children warm, as well.
Recently, she went to the Salvation Army and got 30 coats. She pulled out a coat rack, hung them up, and offered them to students for free while performing her duties as crossing guard.
