4His act of kindness
More than 5 years back, when the city was stuck by strong heat wave, Charlie saw that the sanitation workers who came in a garbage truck were sweating heavily and looked pale. He ran to the kitchen, took plastic cups and water and gave all those men water to drink. He also asked them to take rest in a shaded spot of his garden.
5He started an annual tradition
That was his only day of week-off but he still visited the local grocery store for buying ice, cooler and packed bottled water. The next morning at 6:30 am he was waiting for the garbage truck despite the fact that he worked the whole night and managed to get a little bit of sleep. He put the ice and bottled water into the cooler and told the sanitation workers that from now on, there will be water and cold drinks for them throughout the summer.
