Attention Pearland, Tx!!! There is a real-life superhero sighting in Pearland!
Amid a worldwide pandemic, identical twin brothers Isaiah and Stephen Torres started a non-profit organization ‘Drive By Hereos,” where they cheer up children dressed up as superheroes while they collect food donations to donate to a local food pantry.
“We were just sitting around thinking about how we could help out people adjust to this new lifestyle,” said Isaiah Torres.
They get a lot of birthday requests, but they’ll drop by on request for other reasons, too.
“There are also cheer ups,” Stephan said. “We just cheer up kids who are down because they are stuck inside all the time.”
The community can book a visit on their Facebook page, and the Drive By Heroes come out free of charge.
Their friend Jasmine Saenz helps, too.
“It was such a good idea and it was such a charitable thing to do, just to get out of the house ourselves, but also bring joy to other people,” Jasmine said. “It was just such a nice feeling.”
Their good deeds don’t end there. Although they offer a free service, they do ask for food donations which they give to the Pearland Neighborhood Center. PNC says they’ve seen their needs double since the pandemic began.
According to Debbie Rubestello, executive director of PNC, in less than two weeks, these teens have donated nearly 2,000 pounds of food.
Soon after the news broke of their good deeds, Congressman Pete Olson honored the teens in Washington D.C.
