Kidney for kid

Nicole Bugaj, a retail associate in Toledo, OH, decided last year to become a kidney donor to 3-year-old Ronnie Rusek.

Bugaj and Ronnie underwent surgery in September, giving the toddler a new lease on life.

“He is so much better now,” said local Customer Services Supervisor Charbieara Garland.

Bugaj had learned of Ronnie’s plight from a billboard donated by an outdoor advertising company.

“Giving back is so important to me,” Bugaj told Link shortly before the transplantation procedures. “Why not try to help?”

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
